Have An Eye Of Faith

Have an eye of faith
And a soul to swift respond
To a Lord Who died for us
And makes the weakened strong
Who takes the greatest burden
When we cast on Him our cares
And removes its heaviness completely
Just as if it were never there

The eye of faith sees clearly
From where once was sin's blindedness
To focus on the things of God
From the realm of His Righteousness
For He Who lives within me now
Has become my... Enabler
To triumph in victory over sin
In testimony to His Word

Praise God for that great Physician
Who knows our soul's disease
The accumulation of numerous sins
Should bring us to our knees
May repentance be our lot
To see sin as never before
And ourselves as enemies of God
And seek Christ as the Door

To enter into a sacred place
Where sin has met its match
And know the forgiveness of the Lord
From which Satan can never snatch
And see sin for just what it is
A bondage keeper galore
And then praise God from new eyes of faith
That you'll have forevermore!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
