Conversion Begins

Conversion Begins

Conversion begins with an inside job
That results in an outward change
And a reverential fear of the living God
With an exaltation of Lord Jesus name
And a Hallelujah from a grateful heart
That's been saved by the blood of the Lamb
Walking in new life enjoying the Resurrection 
In fellowship with the great I Am

The Holy Spirit now as our Comforter
That leads us to know the truth
Helping us to make application of the Word
And our transitioning to the Light more smooth
Assuring grace in the toughest of times
Especially in the grief of death
Our sure Helper with our life at present
And continuing until our earth's final breath

New creatures now are we who have believed
And the old things have passed away
The world has lost its drawing power
For we have seen the light of day
Upon recognition of the sinner's that we are
And redemption's availability
The Cross of Jesus Christ my sure hope of Heaven
And my conversion a reality!

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
