When You Show Up

WHEN YOU SHOW UP

Lord when You show up
Things are never the same
You bring about miraculous change
Which glorifies Thy name
O God! God! I can't believe
Just what You have done
Thank You Lord for showing up
You're the Surprising One

We prayed prayed and prayed again
Just waiting on You Lord
You came completely out of the blue
And honored by your Word
Tears of joy start their run
As I surmise the facts
Miracles still do happen
We're blessed by the
acts

No wonder prophets and priests could sing
Answered prayer emits
Praises from the lips of those
Who know God's benefits
And throughout the ages still
We drink from Calvary's Cup
All because of You dear Lord
Because when You show up!

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
