What Transformation

What Transformation

What transformation of the heart
Where Christ the Lord abides
The love of God through His Spirit
Takes it's daily strides
And in our walk of faith on earth
Fortified by prayer
Fitted with the armour of God
We seek His Word to share

And strong now is our passion too
For others to know this One
Who forgives each troubled heart
Through Jesus Christ the Son
And fits us for His kingdom come
Through His blest righteousness
Endued with "Resurrection" power
So others we may bless

And in loving us now we may love
As the Father bids us too
And shine here as His lights in a world
That darkness leads them too
And point them to the way of the Cross
For that Cross still standeth fast
Where Lord Jesus was lifted up
And die for us to bless

They never knew the empty tomb
Would be witness to the fact
That the Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Would initiate the book of Acts
Where His disciples would spread the Word
The gospel throughout the world
And Satan's darts prove pointless barbs
At which to Christ were hurled

And now in glorious power proclaimed
He's Risen! Christ arose!
Victory blooms in full display
God's defeated all His foes
And death no longer holds a bond
On those who've been redeemed
That precious blood of Jesus Christ
Is still!....is still!.......esteemed!!!

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
