When The Dismantling Of Truth

When The Dismantling Of Truth

When the dismantling of truth
Is deemed educationally correct
And is taught unto the masses
With the thought of...what the heck!
And the removal of our main stay
The authoritative Word of God
There's full evidence of the fallout
In the amoral path that's trod

The suicidal tendencies
Rampant in our midst
The death of youth in numbers
That reality now exists
The dependency on paraphernalia
Drugs being the number one choice
Is there not an urgency required
For a truthful clarion voice

Where are the believers with the faithfulness
To give action with their prayers
And cry out to our Almighty God
For surely it is He who cares
To raise a standard of Righteousness
For it's for our common good
And stem the tide of wickedness
That's coming like a flood

O Lord give us a determination
To see Your name adored
And remove those battlements
By which it is abhorred
For Truth is found in Jesus Christ
And can be positively known
May us who know You as our Saviour
Prepare to stand our ground!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
