We Were Created

We were created to know our Creator
Thank you Father for this
You love us with an everlasting love
And our soul's can live in bliss
Sinners we are.. yes!
But You have given a Saviour
If we would but repent of our sin
We can live within your favor 

Your Word lays it out so well
Just how we can be saved
And have the victory over our greatest enemy
Victory over the grave
Satan is already defeated
He has been from the get go
Still he tries to twart every effort
Towards the Salvation of a soul

In the days of thy youth know Thy Creator
Be still and seek the Lord
Enjoy the bounty of His beautiful Creation
Enjoy the blessings found in His Word
Maybe you've never heard it before
But you are going to be judged one day
By ever Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God
I think that's important...I'll say!

So what's holding you back from knowing Him
Change that to (Who)...I might add
Remember the devil goes about as a roaring lion
Seeking to whom he can bring destruction too...sad!!!
Hey!...you're awake today...right?!!!
Why not begin your path
today towards God
Who is plentious in mercy and in grace
Longsuffering so that you might find Him in the Word

Give yourself a challenge today
God with your help I will read
I will start with the New Testament at first
God you know my heart's deepest need
Help me Lord to keep at it faithfully
Until I  have read it all the way through
The devil's not going to hold me back
From finding true Friendship in You!!!

What excuse will the devil give you today
That so easily turns you aside
Maybe you even add to the equation too
By exerting your station of pride
Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord
And He will lift you up
Drink!...drink!. .from the Word's fountain of blessings...
Drink from Salvation's Cup!

Drnk!...drink!...from the Word's
fountain of blessings...
Drink from Salvation's Cup!

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
