I'm Returning

I'm Returning 

I'm returning to You Father
Your goodness... is leading me back
Of all the things in You I cherish
Your love tops... all of that
I'm returning with full surrender
I've learnt my lesson and learnt it well
What a fool to seek our own way
When You alone can deliver from Hell

Who wouldn't want the peace You giveth 
The joy that can flood a soul
And make it ready to burst forth with praises
Because it has... been made whole
Love that provides full forgiveness
Through the power in Jesus blood
Offering unto us... eternal life
And guaranteeing it by His Word

I'm returning my heart is gladened 
Just to know. ..You are my God
And at every trial and testing station
You alone ..have understood
No other love could act in kindness
Such as Your love... poured out in grace
That's what's brought me to my senses
Now I long to seek Thy face...

Forgive me Father for I have sinned
In leaving You out of all my decisions
I've felt the pangs of the wilderness
Of all its pain and schisms 
Now I desire Your Shepherding
For this lost sheep who's gone astray
Praise God I've found my way back home
Jesus lead me all the Way!

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
