Keep My Heart Warm

KEEP MY HEART WARM
 
Keep my heart warm with
A true love for Thee
Never let coldness
Have occupancy
But seeking You daily
Coming in prayer
Continually abiding
Praise God You are there
 
My heart has full room for
A love such as Thine
Who forgives us for sin
And leaves them behind
A fresh slate now daily
And seeking to live
A life that is pleasing
To You Lord I give
 
You've come in "full measure"
Our God "in the Son"
Humanity and Deity
Rolled into One
The glory of earth
And yon heaven above
Giving testimony to
The power of Thy love
 
What keeps my heart warm 
Is, Your love for me
So great a Salvation
Christ dying for me
I have a burden
For loved one's and friends
A heartwarming reception
Because of Jesus my Friend

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
