This Life Is

THIS LIFE IS

This life is the prepatory place
To make us fit for heaven
To make the choice for righteousness
Brings pure joy to living

Our hearts are all transparent
In the sight of God
And faith generated by His Spirit
The end thereof is good

To know the "Truth" the truth be known
The truth shall make you free
Giving light to darkened souls
Procuring liberty

So come to know that blessed Lord
Whose name is etched in history
To know the author of saving faith
Where born again is mandatory

Your sins will be forgiven through
The blood of Calvary's Lamb
A new appreciation as well
To the great "I Am"

For His life gains us heaven
If we but do believe
Confess and repent of sin today
Then walk away and "live!"

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
