God Knows

God Knows

God knows exactly what it will take

To reach you where you are

An alignment of things in your life

To bring you to draw nearer

And come to know the One who gives

Us life after our final breath

The next one being our praise in Heaven

To Him who conquered death

 

My soul can know the God of love

It's no stretch of imagination

My Saviour died to offer me

A wonderful so great Salvation

And by His Holy Spirit gives

New life when we believe

Is there a repentant heart today

That is willing to receive

 

I recognize the hand of God

In all that is around me

How blest to know Him greater though

In the love that can surround me

And bring me to that hiding place

Where it's just my God and I

Where I surrender all of me

To be graced by His supply!

 

O Father now I come to Thee

My heart needs medication

I feel the pain of brokenness

Though art the great Physician

Only You can mend the wounds

That others can not see

How deep the Love of Jesus Christ

May it wash now over me!

 

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
