I Enjoy the Love of God

I Enjoy the Love of God

I enjoy the love of God
For I know what He has done
He came to earth to die for me
In the person of His Son
I can't wrap my head around it
But my heart was strangely stirred
When I recognized my sinfulness
And His Salvation through His Word

I enjoy the love of God
In my deepfelt need of prayer
I know He's always near me
And has the answer there
In times of deepest sorrow
When a loved one's passed away
I enjoy the love of God
He truly is my Stay!

I enjoy the love of God
When there's rejoicing in the air
I know He's set the scenario
To bring such happiness there
Though others may not sense it
It makes perfect sense to me
I know that deep deep love of God
Tis mine for eternity!

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
