You've Blessed Me Lord

You've Blessed Me Lord

Youve blessed me Lord I have no doubt
I've seen your hand of mercy
I've known your grace many a time
To me it's not just heresay
Been there...done that...yes You have
And You're still here today
Continuing on my journey with me
Hoping I trust and obey

And I will...I pray I will
For to whom else shall I turn
Then to you who forgives us our sin
And makes our new hearts burn
For You speak and it is done
Such power in Your Words
The day it spoke to my heart
Praise God I finally heard

Then You blessed You really blessed
Things just came together
By Your unseen hand my God
Each day kept getting better
And my heart began to love
As it had never loved before
And forgiveness found a dwelling place
Through Christ who is the Door

Yes You've blessed O how You blessed
I count my blessings daily
And magnify the name of Christ
Who came to earth to save me
And prayer is special to me now
For I have learned to pray
And there I spend some quiet time
To seek Your will and way!

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
