How easily men resign themselves
To a life filled with addiction
They don't take God at face value
Believe He is all just fiction
But everyday they partake
Of the benefits He provides
And yet leave off the very fact
Jesus Christ is alive!

The Saviour pushed to the sidelines
There's more important things
Yet no deliverance is ever found
The addiction bell still rings
Lord draw them by Your Spirit Lord
To give You consideration
And realize the power You Are
To deliver from addiction

An abundant life awaits the soul
That waits upon the Master
The sooner this is realized
The healing begins the faster
You have the whole world in Your hands
Lord there's room for more
Draw a soul to Thee today
To be rescued from the fire

Power in Thy name dear Lord
Maker of heaven and earth
Holding all things by Your power
Offering us all Your worth
Miracles still do happen
May it happen today
Draw the addicted to Thyself
Help them learn to pray

For prayer begins the way to God
As we draw nigh to Him
The closer we get in relationship
The less we're prone to sin
So open up your heart today
Be honest with the Lord
Repent and avail yourself to Christ
Honor His Holy Word!

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
