You Have a Soul
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



You have a soul you have a body

Which contains the spirit of man 

That is why we sin so much

We must be born again


Born from above by God's Spirit

According to His Word 

Born again as Jesus said

Testimony of our Lord


The flesh was birthed with Adam's  sin

It's in our very nature

That is why it must be changed

If we want a better future


The cross of Calvary secured

Our access to the Father 

One Lord, one faith, one baptism 

No need to look any further 


He is the way, the truth, the life

He points the way to Heaven 

When Christ the LORD is lifted up

In Him we find true living


Not a single day goes by

But that I thank that Saviour 

For drawing me unto Himself

To experience His blest favour 


For sin requires a payment such

That leads each one to die

But Jesus paid for sin's demand

So we can live on high


Check it out while yet there's time

It's written in God's Word 

Don't wait till death takes you where

You wish you'd never heard!


Just a friendly admonition 

But packed full of compassion

I once was lost but now am found 

This stirs me into action


For in the love and grace of God

A continuance of longsuffering 

That He would send His only begotten 

To be for us an offering 


Look and live! My brother live!

Check your heart's condition

Make it bow to Jesus Christ

With humbled felt contrition


Ask the Lord to enter in

To make your heart His home

Enjoy sweet fellowship with that  One

And you never more will roam!

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
