Help Me Lord To Live

Help Me Lord

Help me Lord to live the Cross
To be crucified with Christ
To live as a blessing unto others
For Him... who paid sins ransom price
To be willing to go that extra mile
Willing to turn the other cheek
When we are cursed...still to bless others
For it's their Salvation that we seek

You went all the way for us Lord
And what!... what a way that it was
From the heights of glory to true humbleness
To become our Deliverer by way of the Cross
Transgressors worthy of wrath...
But grace and mercy You have bestowed
For when our heart's felt their need of healing
Your lovingkindness showed

Praise God for the healing balm of Gilead
The anointing of the Holy Spirit
The washing and cleansing by God's Word
The willingness now to adhere to it
I take my refuge in the Cross
Who became sins Refuse heap for me
Poured out His life on my behalf
Praise God for Calvary!

When you know Him...hallelujah!
There's none other Friend like Him
Who relentlessly...seeks our Salvation
In spite of our accumulation of sin
Praise God that I have found Him
O wait!!!...He found me!
Help me Lord...to live my life
So that others may be drawn to Thee!

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
