The Textnbook Of The Universe

The textbook of the Universe
Is Creation 101
In the beginning God Created
All things through His Son
Now that's what I call power
And power to the absolute
All of creation praises Him
And all believer's to boot

O what glory and what wonder
Our God's transmission of love
He spreads it out so evenly
From heavenly portals above
No matter what the colour
Or location of continent
God's gives forth His graces freely
To whomsoever will repent

Nor author of confusion
Is our mighty God
He placed one name above any other
In the which truth is to be understood
And in spite of all of our sinful ways
He's always waiting to forgive
Every repentant heart that calls upon Him
Will live!....he will really live!

You are probably starting to wonder
Just what is that one name
That God has placed above all else
In heaven or earth's domain
To some it may come as a great surprise
Just as to what that one name could be
Well my friend...He is called Jesus Christ
It's in 101's Creation history!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
