A Brain To Think

A Brain To Think

A brain to think a heart to feel
What a blessed combination
To bring the truth to heart and mind
And make the application
Christ surrendered His all for me
Now I surrender my all for Him
His love the treasure of eternity
Gives victory over sin

His Cross displaying the ugly side
Of men separated from God
The vehemency of punishment
The chastening of sins rod
While Angel's help from God was restrained
He took God's wrath for me
And settled death's sentence ...once for all!
That day at Calvary

Praise God I have a heart and mind
To bring me to the Cross
To help me see all that I've gained
While He!...He paid all the cost
There's No excuse for unbelief
By faith He has made it known
For whomsoever repents and believes
The mind and heart both feel His home!

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
