We Have Testers
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

We Have Testers 


 We have a concoction of testers 

Pizza's...whiskey...and wine

 Items also of more solid things

 Automobiles and trucks of like kind

 But the Greatest tester of all things

 From the get go...right from the start

 Is the tester of the finished product 

The Tester of the heart


 He knows it's deceitful above all things 

And desperately wicked as well

 And if it's not changed by the Spirit of God Will live eternally in Hell

 So love beyond all measure

 Love who has God as it's kind

 Took the step to stoop down to men 

And sighten the eyes that were blind


 And opened some eyes has He for sure

 To ascertain the glory of God

 And made a way plain unto all men

 Through the preaching of the Word

 The preaching of the Cross to them that perish 

Is foolishness says God's Word

 But it is a blessing of monumental awareness 

To those who believe on the Lord  

I'm blessed in that I have tested

 And found His Word to be meat and drink

 It took me from a meandering lifestyle 

And actually caused me to really think 


Of the Cross on the hill called Mount Calvary Where the Saviour was Crucified

 I saw my sin in the light of His Word 

How I too...Him had denied


 But praise God for the enlightenment

 Of the redemption through His shed blood 

Innocence hanging that day for me

 Enduring the wrath of God 


So glad in the truth I've invested

 And found it a blessing to me

 I've tried Him and trusted and tested 

Praise God He gives liberty!


 How is your heart today my friend

 If you found it to be tested by God

 Have you found it as He has labeled it 

Deserving of His chastening rod

 Have you any room for Jesus 

For there's room at the Cross for you 

Make that monumental decision today 

Ask the Lord to live inside you 


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
