When I Met The Master

When I Met The Master

When I met the Master
I almost couldn't believe
For it was just by applying His Word to my heart
And simply put..to receive!
For faith comes by hearing
And hearing by the Word of God
Get into the Bible and read the Book
And you'll find your way to the Lord!

Don't wander in the wilderness
Such as did the prodigal son
Where all of your substance is wasted
And your wondering...what's gone wrong?!!!
You've checked out every avenue
That you thought would bring you peace
But here you are again to ponder
With the mindset...woe is me!

O Hallelujah for the hope
That comes from Calvary's  Cross
For lifted up... there for me
Was the Son of Righteousness!
Now there's sunshine in my soul
Praise God to my uttermost delight!.
For I've found a friend...O such a Friend!
Who can save you from your darkest night!

So delights my soul now continually 
For I've drank from the water eternal
Never to thirst again Hallelujah!
For knowing Christ to me is supernal!
Hallelujah for I have found Him!
Or...praise God He found me!
With open arms He met this prodigal son
And He loved me!!!...amen He loved me!!!

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
