We Are On A Downhill Slide

We Are On A Downhill Slide

We are on a downhill slide
You can see it all around
Barriers dropping in regards to morality
A generation that's hell_bound
God is taken so lightly
His name used such in a curse
As I look on the human landscape
Things look worse and worse

People murmuring and complaining
About so many things
Some leaders lifestyles so wishy washy
Certain damnation to bring
You wonder how long God will let it
Get to that point of no return
And as it was in the days of Noah
And they we warned and warned and warned

Repentance praise God still available
His longsuffering that fewer should perish
Seek ye the Lord while He may be found
With opportunity His Word to cherish
The enemy is coming in like a flood
There's a tsunami of sin at the door
Look ye now a standard is raised
The Lord Jesus Christ is the Door

Don't be drugged by complacency
And go along with the crowd
Enjoying the fruits the world has to offer
With its lawlessness all around
God's authority still has its power
For He is beholding to none
But through His goodness and gracious love
Has provided a so great Salvation!

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
