The Invitation Still Stands

The Invitation Still Stands

The invitation still stands
" Come and follow me'
I will make you fisher's of men
Live your life abundantly
For he that winneth soul's is wise
Lay up your treasure in heaven
No more precious gift to offer
Than a soul that's been forgiven

Thank you heavenly Father
For the new life now in Christ
Purposeful sanctified living
Because of our Lord's sacrifice
For great and greatly to be praised
Is that One who died for me
Shall I not offer back to Him
This life that He's given to me

So Father draw me closer
Where the fellowship is sweet
Having my mind stayed on You
Sitting at Jesus feet
Enjoying your Word immensely
Knowing full well I'm in Your hands
Sharing the news with my brothers and sisters
The invitation still stands!

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
