You Have a Soul

YOU HAVE A SOUL


 


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
