Christ Is Our Fountain Of Youth

Christ Is Our Fountain Of Youth

Christ is our fountain of youth
For only He can give life everlasting 
When we repent and turn from our sin
It's free just for the asking
The weight of sins burden...gone!!!
Forgiveness...what a balm of relief
No more fear in regards to death
A bonus of hope in belief

Joy and peace now indwelling
In Christ I have everything
The Holy Spirit as my Comforter
And this is only the beginning
These blessings shall never cease
But will be compounded one day
For when we reach old Gloryland
Our tears shall be all wiped away

It's all to be found in the Book
This earth's greatest treasure chest
For of all the creatures in this whole wide world
God gave of His very best
To be our Victor over sin
To deal death with its final blow
For our risen Saviour...O Hallelujah!
Has washed us as white as snow!

And I'm feeling younger already
Although I'm growing older everyday 
My spirit is united with the Spirit of God
My guarantee of up...up...and away!
There are no words to describe it
But you can know Christ as your own
Come today to His fountain of youth
And live forever near His Throne!

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
