O For The Pleasure And Treasure

O for the pleasure and treasure of
Having victory over sin
Now it can no longer hold me captive 
For the Holy Spirit dwells within
And greater is He who's within me
Than he who is in the world
My victory lies in my faith in Christ
The written and living Word

The Lord...He gave His life for me
When I really understood that fact
I couldn't help but fall to my knees
It was my first true repentance act
And Christ met me at my cross road 
Revealing His work on the Cross for me
And Heaven's door was opened that day
Because of Calvary

From passiveness to praises
My new heart began its rejoicing
And as well that gospel message
Others heard of it now through my voicing
Redeemed how I love to proclaim it
Repent and you shall not perish
Give up those sins that hold you fast
The sins that you now cherish

There's an abundant life at your disposal
Check it out it's found in God's Word
For when you turn from your sin and repent
Praise God you'll find the Lord
There's life in a look at the crucified One
The only one who went
from a Cross to a grave
Who then...Hallelujah!. .rose again!
And whomsoever calls upon Him...praise God he shall be saved!!!

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
