I Bow My Heart

I Bow My Heart

I bow my heart to pay You homage
For worthy are you Lord
To walk Your path on earth obedient
Obedient to Your Father's Word
To become our Light in the darkness
Given that the blind might see
To remove the stain that sin has dealt us
Through Your blood on Calvary

You poured out love in Godly fashion
Forgiveness was Your's to give
And though death was to be deemed our sentence
You came that we might live
There's a deep, deep love in our soul
That can be felt there by the Spirit
And when we repent and are forgiven for our sin
Our desire is that others might hear it

Your life in me O Hallelujah!
Hallelujah for the Cross!
By God's perfect Lamb for Sacrifice
My redemption has been bought!
I cannot help but worship You
For when I was lost in sin
You came on a rescue mission 
So that I might be born again!

Praises now shall never cease
From this saved sinner's tongue
For every day I'm reminded of
That the way of the Cross leads Home
And the full expression by Your life
By Your death and Resurrection
Praise God!... Hallelujah!... I'm alive in Christ!
Who wrought Salvation to perfection!!!

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
