Unbelief To Belief

From unbelief to belief
The difference between day and night
Once we were walking in darkness
But now we're walking in light
What a glorious transformation
When we come to know the Lord
And base our faith on the evidence
That's written in God's Word

For faith cometh by hearing
And hearing by the Word of God
If you want to have forgiveness for sin
Then trust in His redeeming blood
Sin's sacrifice was Jesus Christ
The Lamb for sinner's slain
And every soul  that believes on Him
Is washed from every stain

No condemnation have we now
Who know this blessed One
We are incorporated by His Spirit
Along with the Father and the Son
A threefold bond that cannot be broken
Praise God for such unity
They came to rescue poor lost sinners
Sinner's like you and like me

The Resurrection and the Life
Praise God Lord Jesus came
There is Salvation in none other
What power in that name
Power above all earthly power
Power that created His Heaven
Come and see... He is not here!
Praise God He has arisen!

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
