Rejoice the Resurrection Power
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



Rejoice the resurrection power of Jesus Christ still lives

To those who are distraught with sin..our Lord He will forgive

When love breaks through the barriers that binds the soul's of men

It sets him free from earthly things and makes him born again

The Spirit who was at creation present and who is present still

Takes up abode in repentant hearts...the whosoever will

For whosoever will ...believe on the Lord Jesus name

Will have an eternity free from sin because they're born again

Don't let this world deceive and make you worldly wise

Buying into its philosophy and perpetuating lies

Eat, drink, and be merry, tommorow's another day

But leaving off the thought of which...what if it's our final day

We are not guaranteed old age to end our earth's demise

But may be called on sooner and find a dreaded surprise 

For when before our Maker there's no place for disguise 

All of our life an open book before His holy eyes

How will our performance be when called before His throne

To give account of our life for Him...how much neglect be shown 

Alone with God and awakened to what we should have done

And how we treated Jesus Christ God's own beloved Son

The list of our priorities in the light of eternal value

The measurement of them to God becomes succinctly shallow

Be aware when still there's time..not a moment for delay

But call upon the Lord Jesus Christ while still it's called "today"

If you will hear His still small voice speaking to your heart

Make full advancement to the cross and receive a brand-new start

For precious blood was shed for you ..the blood of Christ the Lamb

That brings redeeming saving grace

Through Him the great I Am

For nowhere in this whole wide world is a greater love that gives

Then through Christ's "Resurrection Power" for our Redeemer lives!

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
