What Value We Put

What Value We Put

What value we put on a few pieces of paper
During our life down here
As evidences of our earth's tenure
And we hold them very dear
You know them all as your acquaintances 
Your wallet has felt their touch
Birth certificate...licence and health cards
We treasure them very much

We would be lost without them
In fact we can get a fine
If we cannot prove that we have a licence
If a policeman were to stop us sometime
Well just imagine the worth of the Bible
Our authority when it comes to faith facts
We can point to many reference marks
As to when we made our first faith act

And God being our Witness Hallelujah!
We know that for sure without a doubt
That day of His witness to our so great Salvation
When our liberated soul gave out a shout
Our paperwork is divinely inspired
Every word written by Holy men
Authorized and authenticated by the Holy Spirit
In Jesus name amen!

The Spirit has sealed my faith's transaction
And forever He will live within
There's no possibility of denying that fact
As God's Word says I'm safe in Him
You might lose some of your earthly documents
To prove your existence down here
But as far as my heavenly tenure is concerened
God's Word abides forever!!!

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
