I Need A Rearranging Lord

I Need A Rearranging Lord

I need a rearranging Lord
I 'know it's tiime for me
I've tried everything I could think of
And it's led to futility
Help me to come with full surrender
Not mine but Thy will be done
And to embrace with childlike faith
The gift of so great Salvation

Don't let me succumb to the fear of man
But help me to fear You Lord
And make a determination by
faith
To begin to read your Word
To search out diligently its blest truth
For the way of the cross leads home
For Christ is in me my hope of glory
Prepared to greet You at Heaven's throne

I need that rearranging Lord
Don't want to waste another day
If I don't seek your help my God
I'll fail trying to do it my way
So help my faith to magnetize
And to be closer drawn to Thee
Attracted by your goodness Father
Until my repentant heart believes!

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
