The Love of God
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Gary James Smith


The love of God as Father
Is founded in the Son
His representative on earth
Shows love towards everyone
His enemies must marvel
As He forgives them too
Bids them seek salvation
While still there's time to choose

And if His child is erring
Wandering from the fold
He leaves the others to seek him
His mercy is untold
Forgiveness brings such blessing
To broken contrite hearts
The Father's love so caring
It never will depart

His Word the balm that heals us
It brings us to our senses
Makes us realize the fact
Tis God that recompenses
No fairweather friend in trials
But sticketh closer than any brother
Who can find such Friend as this
Nor do we seek,to find another

Having tasted that He is Good
The Father bids us come
Seek ye the Lord while He may be found
Trust in the Living One
The signposts point the way
Cease from all your strife
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ today
The way, the truth, the life

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
