May Your Love Penetrate

May Your Love Penetrate

May your love penetrate Lord
The hearts of those who care
And burden us with longing for
A fresh renewal of prayer
To see our loved one's come to know
The One that we know best
And have the joy of sins forgiven
To know that they are blessed

For old age creeps up fast
We grow so far apart
Then we hear of all the ailments
The sufferings of each heart
We wish we would have prayed much more
Gone the further mile
Lightened up a load or two
And left them with a smile

Lord give grace to reaffirm
The essence of our love
And focus on your love for them
Your watching from above
Place our lives in contact with
The children of our youth
Give us opportunity once again
To share with them the Truth

That Jesus Christ can be known
And enjoyed beyond compare
And lives inside each believing heart
In answer to a prayer
And may they call upon that One
Who's waiting everyday
To hear a repentant heart cry out
When they turn to Him and pray!

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
