Don't Live Life On The Sidelines

Don't Live Life On The Sidelines

Don't live life on the sidelines
Wondering!..What on earth is going on!
But live your life in the fullness of joy
In Him who gives the heart a new song 
For the love that He gives is out of this world
That is completely in His hands
When you find Him you will find the game
The game of the life of a second chance!

It'll be a hallelujah when you find Him
For none other can satisfy
Grace for grief and a joy for living 
Of which He has an over abundant supply
I've finally met the Master
Who now means the world to me
For who can conquer sin like the likes of Him
I say praise God for Calvary!

Hey your name are they calling?!!!
Listen to that gospel sound
What's all that joy that they're singing about?!!!
They're hallelujah glory bound!
If you want to be on the winning team
Praise God we have already  won!
Come sign up with a repentant heart
And your Hallelujah's will have just begun!!!
Come sign up with a repentant heart ❤
And your Hallelujah's will have just begun!

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
