There's A Power Available

There's A Power Available

There's a power available to men
For the most part which remains untapped
It's only activated by faith in Christ
When it is it cannot be stopped
For this power spoke the world into being
Made the sun to rule each day
Still holds things together by the Word of His mouth
In Whom the winds and the waves obey

The visible is made by the invisible
Praise God there's another domain
Where only one name has full authority
And praise God it's Lord Jesus's name
Yes all of the power in both Heaven and earth
Are knitted together as One
In the Father...Son...and Holy Spirit
Praise God for that triunion!

Just but specks of dust are we
Minute in regards to our matter
Yet we oftimes think of ourselves
As higher than our very own Creator
There's a judgement Day that is coming
We cannot stop its acceleration
When every human being that has ever lived
Gives an accounting as to their Salvation

It will never be that they've never heard
It will be what they failed to do
That when they heard the truth of the Word 
That they failed to give it it's due
For saving faith is as the result
Of fully trusting in the Son
And holding on to our sin thwarts forever
The hope that we can have in Him

O it's hard to believe but believe it I have
And believe me I know that it's true
Every single Word in the Bible is fact
And written from faith's point of view
For whosoever shall come unto God
Must first believe that He is
No surer foundation than the substance of faith
Which declares...Lord Jesus lives!
No surer foundation than the substance of faith
Which declares...Lord Jesus lives!

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
