Lord You Know

LORD YOU KNOW

Lord you know our heart's
How desparetly wicked they can be
But still You offer forgiveness Lord
And grace and liberty
How much You love us Lord
Incomprehensible love
Began not here on earth below
But began up there with God

Before the foundation of this earth
You had planned Salvation
By faith believing on one name
To every tribe and nation
You lifted up Lord Jesus Christ
And as Moses with the serpent on the pole
Whosoever puts their faith in Him
Is made completely whole!

Now a blessed hope prevails
For through You our Resurrection
Lives can be changed instantly
And lived with new purpose and direction
For soul's are waiting still to hear
How to know of such forgiveness
It is our mission now to share
And we shall do no less!

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
