Sin Will Lose It's Power

Sin will lose it's power to resurrect
And rear it's ugly head
For those who are alive in Christ
Are never ever dead
Though once we lived in that state
Dead in trespasses and sin
Jesus came to emancipate
And let His freedom reign

What a Salvation in the which we live
And move and have our being
He who sees with eyes of faith
Is really really seeing
And grave clothes once that held Him fast
Removed and put away
For Jesus Christ had gloriously arisen
Our night now turned to day

And everlasting hope began
With our Salvation song
For joy He gives to each soul saved
Can you now sing along
Don't let sin now let you down
And lead you into Hell
But in repentance come to Him
Who doeth all things well

Awaken to your deepest need
Your heart made right with God
And preparation for your destiny
On your departure from earth's sod
Then up, up, up and away
With the saints all glorybound
You'll be thankful for all eternity
You responded to the gospel sound!

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
