When Grace Germinates

When Grace Germinates

When grace germinates in the heart
What gift that God bestows
He implants that seed of faith
And watches as it grows
Forgiveness from the root of love
Extends its leaves to all
And fragrance from that wondrous flower
Soft as pedals fall

And spread out love brings colouring
To what was a humbdrub scene
And love begins its bestowing power
That never before was seen
And a spiritual mantel worn by each believer
Goes about seeking to do God's will
With a generosity of spirit
From Him who loveth us still

Praise God for His wonderful love
Towards us who in spite of our sin
Has a longsuffering nature
That seeks to woe us to Him
And uses us as His earth vessels
To bring that good news of the Son
To say to the lost... Repent and believe
Be saved by the Crucified One!

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
