Christ Makes Death Powerless

Christ Makes Death Powerless

Christ makes death powerless
To rob us of our joy
For the invisible Holy Spirit
Is our spirit's heavenly alloy
Praise God for those precious promises
Which are still yea and amen!
For we who've believed on Jesus Christ
And have become born again

Don't just think your earthly birth
Will get you into heaven
Jesus says you must be born again
Then you'll know you're truly living
He who spoke this world into being
And has made us human beings
Knows far better than we ever could
Just what eternity means

Sin is stamped all over us
Proof?...our flesh is turned to dust
Because of one man's disobedience
It falls to the lot of us
But praise God for redemption's song
The song of the soul set free
For by the obedience of the Lord Jesus Christ
Faith has won the victory!

Don't be captivated by the fear of death
For there's a way of escape
Praise God Christ arose from the dead
Praise God He's conquered the grave
His Holy Spirit my constant Companion
From the triune God no less
He also had a part in raising Christ
To make death powerless!

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
