Shepherd's Heart

Thank You Lord for Your Shepherd's heart
In the caring for of Your sheep
Not Your will that any should perish
Praise God Your love is that deep
If any has gone the extra mile
It's been You Lord to lead the way
Trying time after time and time again
To save those who've gone astray

You put obstacles in our way
To try and bring us to our senses
Sadly oftentimes we set them aside
Not aware that they were meant to bend us
For it's not until we see ourselves
As sinners that are lost and undone
Will we ever cry out unto the Saviour
And be saved by the Crucified One

All we like sheep have gone astray
Some...time after time after time
That's why the Lord will come seeking one soul
And leave behind the ninety and nine
Is He your Shepherd yet...He can be you know
Are you that one out from the fold
Look! Here's the Shepherd ...He careth for you!
There's none else that careth for souls!

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
