There's A Going To Be Knowing

There's A Going

There's a going to be knowing
There's a doing to be done
There's a time to meet your Maker
When your life on earth is done
Have you given full attention
To the destiny of your soul
Then make sure its top priority
Before to sleep tonight you go

There's a glory hallelujah
To be sung by each saved one
When you're resting in the Lord
And have trusted in the Son
And the joy of sins forgiven
With a peace that is surreal
Comes to take up residence
By the Spirit that is real

Repentance has its blessings
Upon confession of our sin
While with humble heart we pray
And we ask the Saviour in
What relief in this transaction
When we come to Him in faith
And offer words of obedience
I'll do Lord what Thou saith

Salvation is so wonderful
That Jesus died for me
And offered me an eternal hope
And to live life abundantly
So thankful that I listened
When I heard His Word
Now I know I'm ready for heaven
Thank you... Thank you Lord!

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
