Keep My Heart

Keep my heart in a warming place dear Lord
Keep it close to Thee
Ready to forgive every trepass
That was done against me
And with love attending... The love of God
Help me to do Thy will
Prepared for service for You Lord
This I pray You will

Compassion for the lost and needy
Having a listening ear
Steadfast to your precepts Lord
That they too may adhere
And joy overflowing waters
Poured out from You Lord
Showing forth an abundant life
A blessing through Your Word

And ready as the Spirit leads
Here am I... Lord send me
With faith walking in obedience
In the power of Calvary
For precious blood still runs deep
The deep deep love of Christ
Life is worth the living Lord
Because of Your Sacrifice

Not faint hearted but faithful strong
In the arms of my Redeemer
Being blessed so I can bless
And point them to the Saviour
The story that never changeth
Of Jesus and His love
May it touch the heart of someone
And lead them to You God

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
