The Cross Is Going To Cost You

The Cross Is Going To Cost You

The Cross is going to cost you
Some friends and family
Who'll feel you have abandoned them
To chase some fantasy
But God who is our Helper
And knows us through and through
Is Whom we abide with constantly
And will be a Comfort unto you

Take up your cross and follow Him
The battle's not over yet
There are still souls to win
Don't live with the deep regret
That you refused to surrender all
To the All to Whom you owe
And missed the opportunities of
To win over some lost soul

The Cross it still standeth fast
Hallelujah what a Saviour
Who took sin's utmost blast
And left an empty grave there
Now risen are we in Him
So rise up men of God
Be not ashamed of the gospel of Christ
Nor let your candle be hid!

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
