Awake My Soul To Righteousness 

Awake my soul to Righteousness.. Amen!
Enjoy its benefits
Walking in the light with Jesus Christ
Receive the blessing of it
Waiting upon the will of the Lord
For praise God He leadeth me
With joy unspeakable and full of glory
Brings a satisfying life to me

I've labored to enter into that rest
And found it a treasure sure
Living by faith in the Son of God
My Salvation is assured
Resting on the promises
His Words...yea...and amen!
Yielding to the Lord's demand of us
Ye must be born again!

Swift to God upon awakening
Thank Him for this day
Remembering He gives you the breath to live
Throw some praises His way
Guard your heart above all else
For it is a living soul
Need a transplant for Godly living?
Christ can make you whole!

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
