Here Am I Again Lord

Here Am I Lord

Here am I Lord bend me
And make me usable
Not to do my own thing
But submitted unto Your will
Filled Lord with compassion
Ready to seek the lost
With a love unwavering
Because of Calvary's Cross

For You did not give up on me
How I thank You Lord for that
When I was wandering far astray
You knew where I was at
Though I did not love You then
Your love surrounded me
Until I surrendered to Your Word
Then...praise God!...You set me free

Here am I Lord bend me
I'm needing it once again
To remind me of my former self
The way I lived back then
And how deliverance came to me
When You came to seek my soul
And brought to me so great Salvation
That made me feel so whole

And now my life with sin's forgiven
How can I not give back
The debt I owe to You Lord
So others may know the fact
That God is love and for each sinner
There's grace available today
The requirement remains...genuine repentance
I trust today's your day!

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
