You Can Be Dead
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



You can be dead in trespasses and sins

And still be walking around

Dead to God and all He is

No feet on Spiritual ground

By that I mean the Spirit of Christ 

Without It your none of His

Robing yourself in your own righteousness 

And living for self to please


Unaware  of sin's devastation 

The blight it is to the soul

Living on with no realization 

There's a life that can be whole

The Spirit of God is constantly seeking

And through the heavenly Father's eyes

Is watching for a heart discerning 

Not one that is worldly wise


One that has caught a glimpse of Glory

That God is really there

And has a better plan for your life

To lead you from despair

None a hopeless situation

There's help for everyone 

Available through Jesus Christ 

God's only begotten Son 


Leading us not into temptation 

But delivering us from sin

Full redemption's price has been paid

Ours is to trust in Him

Then the "light of the world " Lord Jesus 

Will give you "spiritual life"

You'll become alive to God in Him

And aware you are " alive! "

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
