Has It Ever Occured To You

Has it ever occurred to you
What if there is a God?
Sure you've cried out oftimes to Him
But then left Him in the hood
Off you wander aimlessly
Still attempting to do your thing
Using God as a fire escape
When you're troubled by something

But to have God as a constant
Is the greatest blessing known
To know Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour
Is an entity of renoun
Strive to know your Creator
While it is He who gives you breath
Remember down here we don't live forever
We've a five letter word called death

But there's a four letter word called life
Much better an eternal one at that
If you put your faith in the Son of God
You'll know the meaning of that
I love to tell that story
Of the One who rose from the grave
And end it most emphatically and explicit 
Jesus saves!...Jesus saves!

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
