I HEARD

I heard the voice of God today
In silence loud and clear
Where have you been my child
I've missed your drawing near

I hung my head and let Him speak
He knew the circumstances
I longed for fellowship once again
To twart old sin's advances

Then Jesus came in loving kindness
To hear my sin's confession
And brought me back to righteousness
T'was such a wondrous blessing

Though sin had brought me to despair
And dampened my inner being
The Spirit that lives within won out
Once again I'm really living

How sweet to dwell in fellowship
With the God who loveth ever
And nothing including death itself
Can from Him ever sever!

I heard the voice of God today
My child go tell the story
And seek to live your life through me
Until you get to Glory!

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
