The Greatest News

The greatest news there ever was
One day the world shall see
Whomsoever believes on Christ
Will enjoy eternity
Satan has the world deceived
Strive now for your riches
Become the man you want to be
Fulfilling all your wishes

And blinded by the Father of lies
Who tells us you shall see
And become as God yourself
This is pure fallacy
Darkness holds its captives fast
And does not lose its grip
Praise God that only Jesus saves
Not one believer slips

So are you living on the dark side
With your passions and your pride
Watch out the Temptor may take you
On a non-returnable ride
Don't let your geography be your history
In the land of the big mistake
And have eternal torment
Thus is a chance... Don't take

Make your reservation
In the Land of "I believed"!
Enjoy eternity forever
With others who are saved
The Light of the world is Jesus
The Light of that world too
You have either of choices
Which home will you choose?

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
