There's Nobody

There's Nobody

There's nobody that can twist our arm
To make us do the things we do
We are led unto the realm of sin
Mostly because we want to
O we can give this excuse and that
To cover all our bases
But when before the Lord we stand
There will be a number of shamed faces

For God will hold us accountable
For our wanderings away from Him
And has given it a titled name
That titled name is Sin!
We always try to smooth things over
And have our own volcabulary
To mask sin for what it is
Living a life that's to God contrary

So a cautionary message friend
Don't walk in your wilful way
For God will recompense in time
A reward for when you disobey
It's a fearful thing to fall into the Hands
Of such a just and holy One
Don't treat life as if it is your own
You are bought by Christ the Son!

So take a deep breath now and consider
What will your future hold
And emptiness outside of God
Will you live your life so bold
To leave out God and His great love
Remember Christ died for your sin
Forget yourself and flee to God
Repent and begin again!

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
