Once Dead Forever Alive

Once dead forever alive
Hallelujah for the Lamb
God's perfect Sacrifice for sin
Our Lord Jesus Christ... amen!
Absolutely astounding
Up from the grave He arose
Now... forever praises still ring
As they will be around the Throne

A Book of infallible writing
Authored by the Holy Spirit
Who moved and worked in holy men's lives
To record words so we could adhere to it
Praise God the Bible still stands
And it shall stand forever
We shall be judged by its sixty-six books
To the law...and to the letter

And our faith comes by hearing
And hearing by the Word of God
Better get into the book and take a look
While your feet are still on earth's sod
Once dead forever alive
Hallelujah for the Lamb
God's perfect Sacrifice for sin
Our Lord Jesus Christ...amen!

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
