Your Whole Life Depends Upon It

Your Whole Life Depends Upon It

Your whole life depends upon it
A relationship with Jesus Christ
Otherwise the devil will have you 
And trap you in his vice
He'll begin to put the squeeze on you
Paying no attention to your pain
In fact if he hears your cries
He just might tighten the screws again

O to be saved and to know it
And to know it you can now my friend
Repent of your sin put your trust in Him
And God's faith in your heart will begin
Give your life an honest appraisal
After all its your Real...estate
What's the quality of your present living
Is it love ..peace and joy
Or is it hate?

Today start your new tomorrow 
In this day that the Lord has made
He spoke by His Word this world into being
It's in Him that our best plans are laid
Start a fire of faith in your soul today
Fan it by your words of prayer
Lord Jesus I long to believe upon you
And I thank you dear Lord that you're near!

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
