Kindle a Fire Lord

Kindle a Fire Lord

Kindle a fire Lord in my heart
And turn it into flame
For a passion to save the lost
I ask in Jesus name
And draw me more to fervent prayer
That it may avail much
And lead me by your Spirit Lord
To sense the Master's touch

Melt this cold heart of mine
And smash it all to pieces
Make me clay in the Potter's hand
I ask in the name of Jesus
Give me a heart of servant hood
Broken and contrite
Obedient to the call of God
Whether by day or night

Make my vision circumspect
To do the Father's will
Nor let any circumstance
Change...Thy..."Peace be still!"
For Thou has ordered every step
That these feet have trod
So I leave my every care
In Your hands my God

Kindle a fire Lord in my heart
And turn it into flame
For a passion to save the lost
I ask in Jesus name
And draw me more to fervent prayer
That it may avail much
And lead me by your Spirit Lord
To sense the Master's touch

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
