Mercy Met Me

Mercy Met Me
 
Mercy, met me at the crossroads
I, was blind, I, could not see
Drowning in, my sin wth sorrow but
Praise God!
That's, where mercy met me
 
Sin, so hideous in it's nature
Clokes the heart, with burdens it can't bare
Takes the joy, of living from its servants
Wide the wound , how devious is the snare
Entrenchment dark , how weary is the pathway
Wide and broad that leadeth straight to hell
Self deceived we think we'll do it our way
End result, it doesn't turn out well
 
 
Where to turn, hard to see the road signs
Who gives directions, in that time of need
Is there a voice, crying in the wilderness
Narrow's that path, o sinner do take heed
Dark the night , sin has set its tactics
Destroy  this soul, one less life to lose
Rob them of, opportunity for Salvation
Snuff them out, before Christ they can choose
 
Where's the soldiers, are they still at their posts
Ring, the, clarion call for war
All out efforts, to alert the wayward
There's mercy waiting, standing at the door
See the Lord, see Him in His glory
Lifted up, seated at His throne
Mercy! Mercy,mercy for each sinner
True repentance , brings the wanderer
home
 
Mercy, met me at the crossroads
I, was bind, I, could not see
Drowning in, my sin with sorrow but
Praise God
That's where mercy me me

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
