There's A Piece Of You

There's A Piece Of You

There's a piece of you that's missing
From the outward view of men
It's the hidden man of the heart
Whether or not you are born again
God knows if that transaction 
Has ever taken place
The fruit of the Spirit should be present
Along with a life of grace

I hope you believe savingly
To the salvation of your soul
And come to know Christ as Saviour
What satisfaction you will know
Yielding to Him who died to save you
His victory... you as well can claim
Remember there's still such wonder working power
When you call upon Lord Jesus name!

There's nothing that can resist His love
Except your will to do so
Please don't harden your heart as such
And end up where you won't want to go
But today go forward with this
"Lord help my unbelief
For I want to live my life with joy
Not to continue on in grief"

So here I am with all of me
Ready to receive all of You
I ask You for forgiveness Lord
For how I've sinned against You
Every burden I now lay down
I gladly count them as loss
For burdens are lifted at Calvary
Praise God for the old rugged Cross!

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
