There's A Love That Completely Surr

There's A Love That Completely Surrounds Us

There's a love that completely surrounds us
That is silent as all get out
Yet remains...constantly the same
Do you know of Whom I'm talking about
The love that although our transgressions
Are worthy to be dealt with so swift
Has such a longsuffering tenderness
That He constantly offers us a gift

The gift of Salvation awaits you
It's all written down in a Book
Ours is to check it out someday 
And to give its pages a look
Use prayer as an introduction
Lord...please help me to see
If there is such a thing as knowing a Saviour
Then reveal it please Lord unto me

God's Holy Spirit will oversee
The prayer that comes from a heart
Who sincerely wants to find out the truth
And is willing to do His part
The Word will take up residence 
As it begins to permeate 
And your life will literally become life changing 
Isn't the fact of that fact just great

I love that my God is love
Not willing that any should perish
Of all the things that my God is
This is the one thing that I mostly cherish
For His Word shall not return unto Him void
For Its packed with truth to the hilt
Can you not see His love for you and me
I trust friend today that you will!

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
