The Things Of The World

The things of the world won't fix your pain
You'll need an outside influence
That's why God sent His own blessed Son
To give you a second chance
Faith is the pathway to freedom
Praise God it's the victory
For every believing heart will find
That Salvation gives liberty!

The sin that has held you captive
Can receive a notice of dismissal 
Forgiveness will flood your heart with joy
And grace will be your new wherewithal 
Yes there is a fountain of blessing 
That's flowing from Calvary
The blood of Christ which cleanses from sin
Is still available for thee

Set your affection on things above
For Heaven is the believer's destination
Of all those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ
And have received His so great Salvation
Take all of your burdens to Calvary
Leave them at the foot of the Cross
The great Physician is on duty twenty-four seven
There's no need for you to suffer loss...

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
