Treasure Island

Gary James Smith

(Sept.22,1946 / Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario)

Lord You Are All Powerful


Almighty God are You
You generate the energy
To see the believer through
By Your Holy Spirit
Indwelling us down here
We've no cause for worry
Nor any cause for fear

You have triumpth mightily
Over sin, death, and hell.
All the ransomed hosts now sing
With our soul tis well

Though satan seeks to devour us
In our walk each day
We can have the Victory
For Lord, You are our Stay

For greater is He that's within us
Than he that is in the world
With our shield of faith
Deflecting darts that are hurled
We have a conflict daily
Yet You have said 'Stand fast'
The trials you are experiencing
These too shall pass

With no hope the people perish
But Lord our hope's in Thee
Creator and Redeemer
The Lamb of Calvary
Now we're really living
For up from the grave You arose
Righteousness exalts that nation
Whom our God doth know

With steps of faith we plod on
Here am I, use me
Make my heart a burden place
For lost souls such as we
Give out the bread my brother
Pass out the water too
Give that Bread of Life to others
That they may drink Anew

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
