Breakup My Heart

Breakup My Heart

Breakup my heart like an earthquake
And smash it to smithereens
If that's what it takes to bring me back
To following You again
I don't want to be a far off follower
But a lover of You Lord
Burdened with a passion for soul's
And a desire to live Your Word

Not just mouthing the phrases
That most people want to hear
But be open and honest with the disobedient
For its You O Lord I fear
There comes a responsibility
When we believe on Christ the Son
We sign up for immediate service
In the work of God's Kingdom

No longer self on the Throne
Our lives are in your Hand
Help us keep eternity in mind
In our pilgrim journeying
There is a place called Hell... Called Heaven
To which will their soul's go
We are standing in the gap
Let our faithfulness show

The love of God so great so wondrous
Look what He's done for you
Are you serving in the field
That He has called you to
Quick you like men be ye strong
Show forth His loving grace
Shine, shine for Jesus Christ
There's victory 's to be embraced

Take up your cross and follow Him
What a Saviour to follow
Not one word came from His lips
That was ever, ever hollow
Whatever He said... He did
In full obédience to His Father
Let us do likewise unto Him
And begin some soul's to gather!

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
