Christmas on the Other Side

CHRISTMAS ON THE OTHER SIDE


 


Christmas on the other side


Angels celebration


The ones who sang Hosanna’s chorus


Now sing of so Great Salvation!


 


He the Lord Himself is there


We know He loveth hymns


He knows the New Song, we shall sing


When all the choir is in.


 


Then communion brings its cup


We shall taste the new wine


Living with the Bread of Heaven


What marvel so divine!


 


And all the saints, yes, all the saints


Shall be bowing lowly


Confessing Jesus Christ as Lord


Saying, “Holy, Holy, Holy!”


 


Dressed in our clothes of Righteousness


Fitted by the Master


We shall live forevermore


What more, could one ask for?


 


All around Heaven's throne


Saints and angels rejoicing


For the pleasures of our Lord


He, Who had a voice in.


 


Let there be light and light there was


He spoke and it was done


Shall speak again to gathered men


To each and everyone.


 


Welcome home my children


You that have believed on My Son


Depart ye cursed into everlasting darkness


All ye wicked ones.


 


There the separation


The utter agony


When lost men are enlightened


To their eternal destiny.


 


Jesus Christ is living


He truly is the Son


This thought they take along with them


Their souls know final doom.


 


God has to wipe away


Every Christian's tears


And remove from each ones mind


Remembrance of former years.


 


As I live by faith


By faith I do believe


He that believeth on the Son


He shall surely live!


 


Hell, a word taken lightly


Spoken each day by men


Will soon become a nightmare


To those who continue in sin.


 


A literal place that the Bible


Speaks of with Holy Breath


Will be cast into the Lake of Fire


This is second death.


 


Lord I pray for sinners


Cause their eyes to see


God expressed in humanness


Jesus living in me


 


Make this heart so conditioned


When it sees men gone astray


It immediately goes to Thy Throne of Grace


Immediately begins to pray.


  


In this Christmas season


May we see Thee afresh


And find within our spirits, Lord


To strive for nothing less


 


Then to see another sinner


Come to Thy Throne of Grace


And sing with saints and angels' songs


When we shall all see Thy Face!

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
