God You Come To Our Rescue

God You Come To Our Rescue

God You come to our rescue
When we see no need of our rescuing
You faithfully follow us lovingly
To convict us of our sin
We thwart Your attempts unknowingly
That's just how lost we are
Not willing that any should perish
You enlighten us by Your Word

What Good Shepherd are You Lord
To the sheep who have gone astray
You'll even leave the ninety and nine
For one who's off and far away
And in some quiet moment
At some stillness in the day
You initiate by Your Spirit
To draw near to You and pray

When my heart reconsiders
The path that I have trod
And of Your gracious, kindness, Lord
That led me to You God
So thankful is this heart of mine
That I found Your Providence
And know You drew me to Yourself
It was not happenstance

So now my prayer for others Lord
I trust You will comply
To bring them to the so great Salvation
They need it before they die
For Thou alone O God art great
And greatly to be praised
And whomsoever believes on Christ
Praise God he shall be raised!

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
