The Love of God Runs Deep and Red
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


The love of God runs deep and red
The blood for sinners slain
And not one drop was wasted there
But covers guilt and shame
And though the attitude of others..
"That man will never change!"
I beg to differ with you brother
My God "doth" rearrange!

It's not an agony of prayer
that brings the wanderer home
But steadfast prayer with love and hope
That saves a wayward son
You never know the day or hour
That God may use to bring
The lost one home for "fellowship "
Then the joy bells ring!

So don't be so quick to judge
Your just a mortal man
God can take a broken vessel 
And bring it to life again
But the rather "check your heart"
Is there love in there?
Then bring the change "you want to see"
By faithful, fervent prayer

Words are cheap..so swift to throw
A few to light a fire
That spreads a gossip traveling train
To turn up the gossip higher
Don't be the guilty party here
And wallow in your mire
The words you speak show your "true heart"
Is that your chief desire

Rush into your closet swift!
Swift! Get on your knees
Confess to God your wretched heart
This is what " you" need
Ask forgiveness for the way
You have treated others
Then truly show God's love " to them"
You'll be blessed in this my brother!

For Jesus came seeking sinners 
Not for the " righteous" man
If you think your better than others
Then you better think again
All our hearts are desperately wicked
Yours is included here
Repent, believe in Christ today
For He is ever near!

Then let His love flow through you
By the Holy Spirit
Who loves to seal men born again
Listen! Can you hear it?
Yes that still small voice of God
Calling on you today
Make that decision to let God change your heart
Now bow your head and pray!

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
