Looking Unto Jesus Christ

Looking Unto Jesus Christ

Looking unto Jesus Christ
The Calmer of the sea
Who predetermines every storm
That comes along to me
And by praise God His saving grace
My sails are preset
So I can weather each storm in life
To the which my life shall meet

I may fear momentarily 
But then swift to faith I flee
To where I'm safe in the Saviour's arms
Who wraps His love around me
And as I remember in each storm
My Saviour's piloting ways
Where He's led me to a Haven of rest
Such love and amazing grace!

Now I'm not threatened by those clouds
That usually prelude a storm
For I am sheltered in the arms of love
Of Him Who calms each one
Still there's kindled in my heart
The reminiscence of those days 
When the storms which
tried to frighten me
He bid them all way

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
