Desperate For Change

Desperate For Change

Are you desperate for change
Only you can answer that
Others can watch by the wayside
They know the true you facts
But until you see it for yourself
That your life must be rearranged
You can argue until the cows come home
That you're really desperate for change

Your life is topsy turvey 
You're having problems to think
You think you'll handle it the same old way
Trying another drug or drink
But that's a very shallow well
It'll leave you high and dry
Tomorrow you'll be seeking the very same sources
And your real need it won't supply

But there's a loving Father
Who's cup is overflowing
Who offers grace...mercy...and forgiveness
Praise God He's still bestowing
On all who seek to change their ways
And finally turn to God
He is ready...and willing.. and able
To cover them by the blood

O the precious blood of Jesus
That washes white as snow
Brings redemption to each sinner
That sees himself as so
And calls upon the God of Heaven
Who's always at close range
Determined now to trust in Jesus
Because he's desperate for change!

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
