There Beats In My Breast

There Beats In My Breast

There beats in my breast so great Salvation
That God has blest me to know
The love of God in Jesus Christ
The lover of my soul
And O what love and benefits
Have I now to embrace
Forgiveness for my waywardness
Enjoying His mercy and grace

Human love cannot compare
To the love He has for me
The deep deep love of Jesus Christ
Who loves unconditionally
And every hour of waking time
I know He's with me here
Oh what a blessing to know my Lord
And walk with Him in prayer

Too shallow is the love of man
With its many limitations
None comparable to God's love
Found in so great Salvation
For high and holy is my Lord
From sin's power we can be free
Oh how He loves, oh how He loves
He loves so absolutely!

Have you found that love for Him
And seek to do His will
Or are you so absorbed as such
To do your own will still
Don't be daunted by unhappiness
Which the flesh will lead you too
But repent and believe on Jesus Christ
And you'll enjoy Salvation too!

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
