Holy Spirit Blow on Me
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


Holy Spirit blow on me
And flame my inner fire
Make again the decision too
Make Christ my chief desire
Stir again my heart to pray
"Not my will but Thine"
To be done each and every day
For Lord I know Your mine

May I not live in shallowness
"Me" being the significant one
But live for Thee Lord Jesus Christ
The Father, the Spirit, the Son
And endued with power from above
May I give witness too
The fact that Christ can save from sin
And make one "born anew!"

Holy Spirit come and bless
And cause the church to pray
And turn from sin to righteousness
To let You have Your way
For when we call upon God's name
And come to Him confessing
We're guaranteed to have His ear
And a season of refreshing

So let the rain fall from heaven
Listen! Hear it's sound
Where hitherto there was no blessing
This is fertile ground
So pour out Spirit on Thy church
Let the blessings flow
That gospel message..."Jesus Saves!"
The whole world has to know!

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
