Our Only Reasonable Hope

Our Only Reasonable Hope

Our only reasonable hope in this world
Is our faith in Jesus Christ
And once again we will soon be celebrating 
Our Saviour with a perfect life
Not one comparison with which to compare
Does anyone have a name?
Yesterday...today...forever!!!
His reputation is still the same!!!

Our soul is on a collision course
But still we can make a choice
As to its eternal destiny
Praise God we have a voice
That can call upon Him for mercy
That can call upon Him for grace
When sin usurps to bring us down
We can seek the Master's face

Jesus what a Friend for sinner's 
With such availability 
You can call upon Him twenty four seven
He knows of your history
Are you finally ready for that change
That you know you've been thinking of
Then give your heart over for His keeping
And know the love of God

Hallelujah what a Saviour 
Who paid all the debt for our sin
Who by the shedding of His own blood
Can give us forgiveness within
We can know for sure...Hallelujah!
The Holy Spirit bears witness to this
What better season than to become a born again Christian 
Then during this season of Christmas!

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
