Activated Upon Phoning 

Credit cards...awe the bliss of it
To some it's like an opium
The pure delight when those words are read
Activated upon phoning
Then we gain our access
It's pretty well instantaneous 
All the goodies our eyes behold
Our debt ratio going to a plus

Well the Word of God works the same
It has activating power
When we open it to read God's Word
The Spirit begins that very hour
It reaches our mind...it reaches our heart
To bring the truth to bare
To the deepest need of our soul
Is its need to trust Christ here

We owe a heavy debt to God
Our sins have compilation
They just keep adding up and up
Oftimes leading to consternation 
Praise God Jesus paid our sin-debt
Yes...for each and every one
Forgives us for every past sin
With a clean slate now to move on

I'm so thrilled I've activated
The blessing in His Book
And I've found Him...the Author of faith
Because I took a look
Come now friend to the Saviour
His mercy cup is full
Take a drink and find Salvation
You've an inheritance if you will

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
