Lord Lead Me

LORD LEAD ME

Lord lead me to a quiet place
A place where I can pray
And leave the distractions of this world
And the burdens of the day
A place where I can be with you
As a Father with his son
And share what is upon my heart
Knowing you listen to each one

That quiet place where peace is found
For my mind is fixed on Thee
And sins confessed with honestness
And cleansing full and free
Now forgiven truly blessed
A blessing I may become
And leave your presence fully equipped
For the service of Thy Son

That quiet place is monumental
If I am to do your will
For unconfessed sin will hinder
That work upon Calvary's Hill
And Resurrection power sustains me
I have new life in Christ
Who shed His blood to provide me with
The joy of an abundant life

So lead me to a quiet place
A place where I can pray
And leave the distractions of this world
And the burdens of the day
A place where I can be with you
As a Father with his son
And share what is upon my heart
Knowing you listen to each one

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
