Sin Has A Costly Penalty

Sin Has A Costly Penalty

Sin has a costly penalty
That only God could pay
For a sinless Sacrifice was required
To wash sins debt away
And a Lamb became available
And by His own undertaking
Jesus shed His blood for our sins
So we might obtain Salvation

Unfortunately there's no lineup
To check out Salvation's fact
The devil will thwart you upon every effort
He hates it when truth is intact
So the father of lies continues to lie
And he does it so sneakily 
He will send the thought to your mind
Forget about eternity!

But friend there's a loving Father
Who cares for you more than you know
He's trying to draw you by His Spirit
To place more worth on your soul
So give it up for Jesus Christ 
Who deserves our complete adoration
Consider the cradle!...the Cross and the grave!
And consider His so great Salvation!!!

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
