While Whistling

WHILE WHISTLING 


 


While whistling on a job


Just few days ago


A fella stopped and commented


You must love your job so


I said your wrong my friend


Happiness is not what you do


True happiness  is really found


In who you know


 


If you know the Lord


And He lives now within


Your happiness is the result of which


Christ died for my sin


The job it doesnt matter


I'm happy anyway


Twenty four seven Christ is here


That sure makes my day!


 


Now he was set to thinking


What's he talking about


What joy around is this


I haven't heard about


This is now a bonding


When I see him again


My happiness a habitat


Because I'm born again!


 


The joy of the Lord our strength


Get that whistle working


You may start a revival fire


In a heart that's hurting


If you can't whistle sing


For we've a story to tell


Spread glad tidings everywhere 


Christ can save from hell!


 


Don't be ashamed to whistle 


Don't be ashamed to sing


This world needs a dose of joy


Remedy for everything 


Merry heart doeth good like medicine


A prescription from God's word


Given by the Great Physician 


Jesus Christ our Lord!


 


Practice every morning


Let those joy bells ring


Take your choice of which to do


Whistle or to sing!


Then header to the market place


Your place of employ


Let them see your new found strength


They may embrace your joy!

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
