Sin is only a three letter word
But has powerful ramifications
It will bring you to your death
And perhaps a loss of Salvation
Destructive in its mission therefore
I pray you treat it not lightly
But take it with sincere recognition
In the sight of our God Almighty

For you were born with a sinful nature
Because of disobedience of Adam
And unless you are "born again"
Your eternity will be a sad one
The wages of sin is death you know
Stated by the Words of our Maker
And only through the Lord Jesus Christ
Is a precious gift of the Creator

For God in Christ our Reconciliator
Has bridged the gap between
And has become our Mediator
Just Him there's nothing between
In the finished work of Jesus Christ
We have Redemption through His blood
And in that He raised Him from the dead
His sacrifice was well pleasing to God

So don't let sin rob you of
An eternity with the Father
But come with a repentant heart
Don't let it take you any farther
But in a nearness to your God
Who's the Author of Salvation
Humble Thyself in His sight
Then be filled with Spiritual elation!

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
