Make My Heart

Make My Heart

Make my heart to feel the music
Of the song of a soul set free
With the joy of sin's forgiveness
Because of Calvary
To walk in love in the Light
Dispelling darkness fears
Trusting only in You Lord
What greater cause for cheer

Equipped to walk in the Spirit
For victory over the flesh
Renewing of our mind for service
Going forth to bless
And giving hope to the hopeless
Praise God you can be saved
You can have new life in Jesus
Who conquered greatly the grave

Make my heart a dwelling place
Where You Lord can abide
And feel as welcome as You can
While You live inside
Where fellowship will be so sweet
As I seek to do Your will
And wait upon You O my God
And hear Your... "Peace be still!"

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
