May The Highest Affection

May the highest affection of my heart
Be unto Thee O my God
Be Thou my chiefest meditation
In the searching out of your Word
Protect me from sin's contamination
May your Spirit give me victory
Then I'll walk with joyful rejoicing
For the God you are to me

And what a God I have in You
For you are God...and God alone
None other can usurp your authority
For You rule from Heaven's Throne
And set in course the direction of
Those who seek to do your will
The steps of a good man are ordered by God
The obedient soul is still!

There's no want of praise in me
For my heart is overflowing
With the ownership of so great Salvation
My God is sure worth the knowing
And to think that sinner's can
Be saved by the blood of the Lamb
I'm so glad I trusted in Christ
And found Him the Great I Am!

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
