I Close the Door on Yesterday
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Gary James Smith



I closed the door on yesterday

And laid me down to sleep

I know my Lord watches over me

And He my soul doth keep


Another year is put to rest

I rest in Him as well

So thankful that I'm heaven bound

Delivered from death and hell.


The Spirit still abides within

He's promised never to leave

Such wonderful grace my God doth give

So thankful to Him I can cleave


That burden's still within my heart

To see some lost soul saved

He impresses it upon my heart

For that I've often prayed


May I not leave my first love

But continue strong in Thee

As I wait upon Your will my God

Waiting on bended knees


Oh send Your Spirit Lord to quicken

And stir the hearts of men

True repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ

In Jesus name Amen!!!!!!!

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
