A Transaction A Transition A Trajectory

What a blessing when we are saved
Our sins have been forgiven
Now we're walking in newness of life
By darkness we're no longer driven
And the soul begins its singing
A song from a soul that's set free
That transaction upon trusting in Jesus
Has definetly left an imprint on me

Once my desires were earthly
Now I'm setting my affections on high
I can live above this world
For His Spirit now in me abides
Leaving the past behind me
I'm pressing onwards towards the prize
That transition upon trusting in Jesus
I for certain shall never despise

And one day I'm heading for heaven
With all of the saints who've believed
Not in the power of the flesh for sure
But in that Resurrection whom I have received
For death has lost it's hold on me
My Saviour has seen to that
That trajectory upon trusting in Jesus
Through His Word is definitely a fact

So captivated by His love
I'm resting in His grace
Armed with faith as my victory
I know I shall see His face
I'm a pilgrim bound for higher ground
An heir and joint heir with Christ
Because of that transaction, transition, trajectory
For He's paid my ransom price!

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
