It's Going To Take
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

It's Going To Take

It's going to take a little while
Until the truth clicks in
When you begin to read the Bible
And find out about your sin
But what a learning experience
That's sure to bode you well
For when you come to repentance
You'll deliver your soul from Hell

The only way to find saving faith
Is to read the Book
For faith cometh by hearing
I'll be glad if you undertook
To read about the Lord Jesus Christ
For He's faith's author and finisher
And may the Holy Spirit of God
Draw you nearer and nearer

Use prayer for your beginning friend
God help me to understand your Word
To make application of it to my life
So that my soul's  destination is assured
For there's no other name so familiar
In regards to the things of God
There must be something about that name
That needs to be understood

The Cradle...the Crown...the Cross
His death...His  Resurrection 
Then Christ sharing things that must come to pass
Then praise God His ascension
What a Saviour to follow
Who'll lead you all the way
He is the Word...the living Word!
Put your trust in Him today...

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
