Lord Help Me

Lord Help Me

Lord help me to have a heart for God
As David did of old
To stay in close communion with You
As each scenario unfolds
And murmur not nor complain
Whatever be my lot
But draw upon Your awesomeness
Contented in each spot

Aware of who You are my God
The just and holy One
Who offered up as sacrifice
Your only begotten Son
And gave forgiveness in full measure
Now the just can live by faith
And embrace each precious Word
Spoken from Thy book... Thus saieth!

Lord help me find my spiritual cave
Where I can retreat in prayer
Where I can pour out my heart confessions
Knowing you are there
And once again refresh myself
In a timeout Lord with Thee
And consecrate myself again
For Him who died for me!

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
