You Are Mindful

You Are Mindful

You are mindful of us O Father
How neglectful most are of that fact
While Satan continually comes against us
You always have had our back
How precious Thy Word to sustain us
Our Spiritual treasure within
Its pages woven with the crimson thread
Our Sacrificial offering from Heaven

O what joy when faith arises
To know You savingly
To see sin as the dart that it is
To destroy us eternally 
Your sinlessness our blessed hope
For that I praise You Lord
The Word, Yourself, becoming flesh
To make our Salvation assured

O to penetrate the heart
To see its lost estate
Your Word and Spirit tandemly 
Show forth Heaven's gate
That Cross still so significant
Which settled our sins account
Still offers freely grace and mercy
When our sins are tantamount

To learn the meaning of repentance
Should be taught at an early age
To bring to point the thought of Heaven
That there is....life!... after the grave
He already knows your tomorrow 
And He'll take care of you today
Has your heart been settled in His Word
May you be mindful of that thought today

Lord squeeze our hearts till they're drained of self
May Thy grace be sufficient for me
The load of sin is too heavy to bear
Praise God we have Calvary
And prayer our substance to request
Lord Jesus come into my heart
And with my tongue I now confess
With Your life I'll make a new start...

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
