Wrestle For Your Joy

Wrestle for your joy
Fight the good fight of faith
Put the devil in a chokehold 
Don't let him determine your fate
For we have a risen Saviour
Hallelujah for that fact
Satan has lost his holding power
By Christ's Resurrection act

The Holy Spirit our Protector
Who helps us along the way
Leading us in the will of the Lord
When obedience is our stay
The Book of Life our manual
The B...I...B...L..E...
Any questions that we might have
Are settled there eternally!

Fortified for service now
We have the Father...the Spirit..the Son
A threefold source of venue
In the which to carry on
Talk about victory!...We've got it!
Praise God for Calvary!
Our delight in this world is the Lord Jesus Christ
Who's a Resurrected Saviour for me!

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
