I WILL NOT WALK BUT I WILL RUN

I WILL NOT WALK BUT I WILL RUN

I will not walk but I will run
To that door of hope for me
I am so lost I need a friend
One who'll bring me...eternity!
Lord Jesus Christ now lifted up
Thou came down from heaven above
To shed your blood for my sin
O Lord my God.. how great Thy love

This love constrains this heart of mine
To dedicate itself to Thee
One who was lost and who was blind
I now am saved ... I now can see
O may my soul take appetite
In the things of You my God
Where once I did not understand
Now I do...through Thy blest Word

May my tears that prayer makes fall
In the end come to this bliss
That those who know not of these prayers
Come to know Thy righteousness
Thy righteousness that offers grace
And gives such peace and deep felt joy
May they be blessed to know my Lord
And they themselves His word employ

Saints in prayer for sinner's lost
With deep compassion for their soul's
Continue looking to the cross
With prayers of faith...they be made whole
O Holy Spirit come and bless
Draw all men through the Word
May this be the cause we own
Lord Jesus Christ...He is our Lord!

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
