Your Word Living In Me

Thank you Lord for your Word
That brings true light to men
That brings them to the realization
They must be born again
From the very words of your mouth
You made that stated fact
Of all the things that men should do
Born again is an important fact

Our earthly birth we cannot control
When we are born of the flesh
But a Spiritual birth is necessary
If we're to taste of Heaven's breath
Quickened by the Spirit of God
In a response unto the Word
Repentance from our sin desired
Well pleasing unto the Lord

Thy Word you've placed above all else
It shall never sway
It will remain steadfast as ever
Though heaven and earth shall pass away
For You the Word are living Lord
Our judgment by it assured
Every Word of it held high and holy
By which our destiny is secured

How I praise You for Thy Word
That pointed out my sin
And brought conviction to my heart
Revealing my need to be born again
And then still further comes more praise
Now I praise Thee constantly
Enjoying forgiveness for my sin
Your Word living in me

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
