Lord You've Built Us To Cry

Lord You've Built Us To Cry

Lord You've built us to cry
When we experience the moment of loss
The pain within needs a release
Such as Your death on the Cross
When life as we know it here
Has reached its final cessation
There's a shock like none other
As our heart's begin its adaptation

The emptiness like none other
We've ever experienced before
The realization of the preciousness of life
Reminding us over and over
How there are moments to be captured
Memories to be stored up
Fun and laughter and times of sorrow
These are all part of life's cup

Time so swiftly passes by
Before you know it old age has come
And photograph images of youthful years
Bring memories of things left undone
The.."O... if we... just could go back"
And do some things differently
Are challenges to us to make a resolve
I will!...My God helping me

So thank You Lord...You've given us a hope
There is life beyond the grave
Our bereavement... is temporary
Because Lord Jesus can save
And an eternal life in Your presence
Our guarentee upon our trusting in Him
When the grip of grief releases its power
And the grace.. of our God begins reign

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
