There's A Constrictiveness Too Sin

There's A Constrictiveness Too Sin

There's a constrictiveness too sin
That strangles the life out of us
And brings us to a desert place
Where there's no bread or water to sup
But Christ who is our Oasis
In a dry and thirsty land
Can fill us up with living water
That we might never thirst again

O to be filled with God's Spirit
A touch of heaven right here!
To know a definite satisfaction within
Praise God that we're saved for sure!
To have God now within me
As my Saviour and my Friend
No higher hope can ever be obtained
Than by completely trusting in Him

O what we've gained from His suffering!
Who was obedient unto His death
To give us an opportunity to abundantly live
And to enjoy an eternal breath
Born again by God's Holy Spirit
Praise Him I'm a child of the King
For I found that when I repented of my sin
I found my Everything!

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
