The Proof Is In The Putting 

The proof is in the putting
In the putting on no less
Put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ
And make no provision for the flesh
Love not the world nor the things therein
But enjoy the love of God 
Walking in victory over sin
While on His earth you trod

Learn to love the Lord thy God
With all thy heart and soul and mind
And when you find yourself falling in weakness
In Christ sure strength you'll find
Put ye on your armor of faith
To face the battle's fray
Using the Word of God as your sword
To help you get through each day

Put on hope as your future
For we have Someone to look forward to
Rejoicing in the finished work of Christ
That Calvary had led us too
Where we'll take a vacation from death
Never to return again
For we've learned to put on the Lord Jesus Christ
Hallelujah for that putting on!!!

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
