Upon My Heart

Upon My Heart

Upon my heart is a burden placed
To see each lost soul saved
Not one manufactured by myself
But by the Victor over the grave
And Christ in me that glorious Hope
With a Light that will never dim
Has kept an active passion there
Since I've been born again

That blood that precious blood of Christ
By the which we are redeemed
It flows continually for our sake
Empowering as it cleans
And once we're saved we're in God's hand
Almighty loving Lord
And He will never ever change
Because he is the Word

The Holy Spirit Comforter
He directs our way
And when we're walking with Him
We cannot but help to pray
For God's great mercy unto us
When we had gone astray
Can be extended by grace through faith
To some needy one each day

So live in the Light of the glorious gospel
We're just pilgrims down here
Waiting for our Master's return
When we shall disappear
And being caught up by the Spirit
To our home on the other side
To fellowship there with Jesus Christ
And the church His chosen Bride!

Lord lay some soul upon my heart
That I might pray and fast
Until they're safe within the fold
Lord this the prayer I ask
To give some other sinner lost
A chance to be set free
To enjoy that so great Salvation
Because of Calvary!

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
