The Glory Of The Gospel

The glory of the Gospel
What a story we have to tell
Eternity in the balance
Are you choosing Heaven or going to Hell
There's no beating around the bushes here
Christ made it very plain
Man's to repent of the sin in his life
So his soul will have Heaven to gain

Or will you still be captive to sin
Satan taking you at his will
And making your life a daily misery
Held in his bondage still
Well there's a Frredom Fighter
Who went to an old rugged Cross
Taking all the penalty you deserved
And offering eternal life instead of eternal loss 

Make your heart ready to respond today
Will it... to repent of sin
Be done forever with the Father of lies
Begin your new beginning
Amen to what God's Word says
Call upon the name of Christ 
Then fall upon your knees and worship Him
Who paid your sin's ransom price!

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
