A Deep Desire

A Deep Desire

A deep desire precedes deliverance
Are you there yet my friend
Or are you still hanging on to sin
As if you don't want it to end
God is longsuffering and plenteous in mercy
He's seeking for reconciliation
Will you not be reconciled to God
And escape an eternal damnation

God is love and can do the impossible
Even though you think He cannot
Repent of your sin and trust in the Lord
A so great Salvation your lot
Look to the Lamb see your Redeemer
Resurrection is found in that One
Call upon Him the Shepherd of love
The Father.... The Spirit... The Son

May your desire be to see Jesus
And live in His kingdom above
Let go of the world and all it's attractions
Enjoy His great fellowship and love
May that desire to change your behaviour
Be moved by the Spirit of God
And faith be, your deliverance and freedom
His love be your source as the Word

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
