So May I Run

So May I Walk

May I walk with a surrendered will
To obey Thee O my God
And have my heart settled in
The blessings of Thy Word
To enjoy the benefits of
Your mercy and your grace
In prayer and praise magnifying
You Lord... In first place!

And seeking souls as my mission
It's You I aim to follow
Having a life full of Hope
Not one bit of it hollow
For You Lord are my All in All
You are my Everything
You mend the brokenness of life
And make the heart to sing

And O what blessed joy emits
From hearts that are redeemed
Almost if we never sinned
That's how good it seems
But we the ransomed souls admit
We've not done this alone
But through the precious blood of Christ
Our sins have been atoned

So may I walk.... No!... May I run!
Unto Thee blessed Lord
When the burdens of the day
Are causing me discord
To be sheltered underneath
Your everlasting arms of love
And be borne by your Spirit
To know Thy Presence God

You are the voice recognizer
You hear us when we pray
You know your children's wanderings
You know just when we stray
So heavenly Father draw us
To have with You a talk
And stir our heart's again to obedience
So may I walk... So may I walk!

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
