Proof of Second Birth


When death is swallowed up in victory

In a twinkling of an eye

And the last trump is sounded

As we ascend to our home on high

Mortals put on immortality

The corruptible become incorrupt

At the sounding of the Master's voice

As He shouts "Saints! Come Up."


O the glory and the honour

That are due to Jesus's name

Will be sanctioned by the Father

As we gaze upon His frame

Those nailprints in His hands and feet

The wound there in His side

Will bring to us remembrance of

His body crucified


That blood atoning sacrifice

That takes away all sin

Praises shall break forth from the mouths

Of all who've entered in

And in our kneeling at the Throne

With every tongue confessing

Jesus Christ is surely Lord

No need for second guessing


There the mystery revealed

O worthy is the Lamb

Saved to serve forevermore

He the great I Am

Believers from every tongue

And nation on this earth

Testimonials truly of

The proof of second birth

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
