Salvation Dawned on Me
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



That day Salvation dawned on me

I shall not soon forget

For over thirty years have passed

And I’ve not forgotten yet.


Each morning brings that memory

Praise God, “I’ve been forgiven!”

And Jesus has a plan for me

Each day is worth the living.


My life is hid with Christ in God

Encompassed with that thought

I surround myself with true resolve

What precious life I’ve got!


I’m subsequently fortified  

And fit to face the day

Knowing the Lord will be with me

Whatever comes my way.


You might say, I’m on the mountaintop

Before I reach the valley

But at the closing of each day

When I take my faith-led tally


There it’s shown in memory

Of a faith filled day with Him

My Lord has won the victory

By delivering me from sin!

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
