Speak to me Lord
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Speak to me Lord

Speak to me Lord Thy servant heareth
In this quiet hour
Awestruck with your loving kindness
And your awesome power
You are worthy... Yes You are
And so deserving of my praise
It is Your love that holds me fast
Each and every day

To be distanced now from sin
You're my Spiritual Supplier
The thoughts of You Lord overwhelm me
You're my Chief Desire
A satisfaction deep within
Calms this needy soul
And the thought that very thought
Christ has made me whole

To be washed by Your Word
Such a cleansing there
Resulting in a motivation
To come to You in prayer
So here I am again dear Lord
At the ending of my day
To take this precious quiet time
To meditate and pray!

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
