Lord You Can

Lord You Can

Lord You can magnitize any heart
When it draws nigh to You
And bring them to that holy place
Where they can worship too
The sin that was sown in days gone by
Now bids a sweet farewell
And forgiveness begins its blooming ways
Not a destiny now of Hell

And light breaks forth in brilliance
For we've been born anew
And our Lamb of Deliverance
His sacrifice is true
God well pleased with it all
Raised Him from the dead
Praise God for that Resurrection power
In Christ our living Head

The Friend that sticks closer than any brother
Is a Friend of mine indeed
What a Friend I have in Jesus
He can meet your every need
So draw a little closer friend
Give clear vision to your eyes
Just one step... A little step more
And Christ shall magnitize!

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
