Sin Tries To Stifle The Truth

Sin Tries To Stifle The Truth

Sin tries to stifle the truth
But the truth can not be extinguished 
For Jesus Christ is the Light of the world
His title shall never be relinquished 
As He is the way, the truth and the life
He's an all encompassing Saviour
Only those who delight in His Word
Will find they are in God's favour!

You know there's an unsettling in your heart
That each day you've been discovering
Well friend praise God...I've a revelation for you
It's probably the result of sin
It has never been labeled as to what it is
In the secular realm today
But in the realm of Spirititual things
Sin!!!...is not okay!!!

We all have sinned and come short of God's glory
Our stature there is the same
Only one man who lived without sin
And the Lord Jesus Christ is His name
That's why He can be our Saviour
For in Him we are justified
God accepted His death on our behalf
When the Lord Jesus was crucified

God made Himself responsible for your Salvation
The gospel is preached every where 
But there's a responsibility that's yours as well
You have to decide with your will
Don't put it off until tomorrow 
What can be had by you today
Call upon the name of the Lord
And begin your brightest day!

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
