Sin Has Lost Its Stranglehold

Sin Has Lost its Stranglehold 

Sin has lost its stranglehold 
Since I have been redeemed
Faith has given me victory over 
What once had held me fast by its schemes 
My soul has gloriously been translated
From the darkness into the light
Now I'm living in the Kingdom of God
And Heaven is my sole delight

I'm looking forward to that city
Whose builder and maker is God
Where with others who know the Lord
I'll stand on Heaven's sod
Where streets of gold is what we'll walk on
For up there there's a far greater worth
It's the person of the Lord Jesus Christ
The most precious name on earth!

It's the Lamb who for sinner's was slain
Every knee bowing and every tongue confessing
That Jesus is Lord...praise His name
To think that sin could have robbed me of 
The whole of this earth's greatest treasure
A personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ 
Praise God I trusted in that Saviour!

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
