May I Live to Glorify
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


May I live to glorify the One who died for me
And with each breath I breathe each day
May praise be found in me

To my Redeemer...Saviour...Friend
My heart...I've given all
And rest assured by faith in Him
I shall never fall

For on that cross my sin was borne
Each and everyone
He took them all and paid my debt
All praise to Christ the Son

My God in human form became
The lover of my soul
And willingly shed His blood
That I might be made whole

Shall I hold back this life He gave
And waste it just on me
That would be too great a sin
For my God to see

So here I am dear Lord today
In brokenheartedness
I repent and turn from my sin
And pray dear Lord you'll bless

For you....you are my everything
Your life you gave for me
Help me live from day to day
To live my life for Thee!

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
