My Heart Has Made
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


My heart has made glad preparation
For Jesus Christ the Son
And has been indwelt by the love of God
Most blessed Holy One
I was a stranger to that love
A stranger to that grace
Until I saw my sinfulness
Had caused Him such disgrace

And put on Him a crown of thorns
Spittle on His face
Drops of blood flowed from His side
Condemned He took my place
And openly for all to see
My Lord was lifted up
Took such wrath upon Himself
The fullness of God's cup

And there...there... poured out for me
The wrath that I deserved
My blessed Lord was crucified
My God...the Living Word

The blind now see, the deaf now hear
The lame now walk and leap
And Father God blessed this world
Through the Shepherd of the sheep

As shepherds watched their flocks that night
And heard the angels sing
May our hearts be stirred by faith
To acknowledge this King of Kings
For in that manger birthed by God
"Our strong Deliverance " came
To be born on Christmas day
Our Christ...our Lord...our Son!

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
