Lord Make My Heart

Lord Make My Heart

Lord make my heart give forth praise
For what great things you've done
You've brought my heart to the realization
Of my deep need of your Son
And I have found Him...praise God!
What a blessing to my soul
Now it sings with adoration
To the One who made me whole

It would be criminal for me not to share
As to what grace has brought me through
I love to tell the story of Christ
And of what He can do for you
He replaced my burden of sin
Now for a burden for men
To share with them the gospel story
Of their need to be born again

We are now commissioned for mission
There's a lost world dying in sin
We are His lighthouses here on earth 
Don't let your lamp go dim
May I not forget your benefits Lord
For You are our great Benefactor
Our greatest benefit...Christ's Salvation
It the greatest thing one could ask for!!!

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
