O For A Resurgence

O For A Resurgence

O for a resurgence
Of our father's faith
A steadfast affirmation
In the Lord's...thus saith!
Seeing the day's at hand
For the Lord's soon return
Knowing multitudes still are lost
We pray to Christ they will turn

A genuine Godly repentance
Upon conviction of their sin
And then with a rejoicing telling thereof
Because of new found faith in Him
With a hungering to let others know
So they too may come to Christ
And know the joy of sins forgiven
Through Him who paid our ransom price

Where Hallelujah's have a home
In the heart of each one redeemed
And now above every other name
That name of Jesus Christ esteemed
Where as natural as is breathing
So is our desire to tell
About the love of God in Christ
Who doeth all things well

Touch our heart's dear Father
By Thy Holy Spirit
Bring us back to our first love
And to your Word?...To hear it!!!
Submitting our all to You
Daily to seek Your will
With a Divine resurgence as such
We will know Your...."Peace be still!"

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
