Lord You Kept Your Focus

Lord You Kept Your Focus

Lord You kept Your focus
For when all was said and done
You still said "Father forgive them"
Thou great and loving One
That we can know the grace of it
For the sinner's that we are
Your love poured out at Calvary
Our True Refiner's fire!

When sin comes around to haunt us
And brings us to those chains
That held us fast in bondage
We can't let them remain
But breaking forth in praises
My God...I've been set free!
I keep my focus kept on Christ
Who kept His focus on me

I relish in that wonderment
I know I am redeemed
And almost have to pinch myself
That's how surreal it seems
That we can become a child of God
By faith in God's dear Son
Yes...saved by grace through faith
May you focus on that One!

Lord You kept Your focus
For when all was said and done
You still said "Father forgive them"
Thou great and loving One
That we can know the grace of it
For the sinner's that we are
Your poured out love at Calvary
Our True Refiner's fire!

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
