Help Me To Learn

Help me to learn to love you Lord
In my living from day to day
Help me to find a quiet spot
In which to meditate and to pray
To cast on you my every care
For you have a listening ear
Expressing with complete honesty
For it's the truth that you hold dear

May my heart be glad to praise
And give you adoration
For your blessing unto me Lord
In the gifting of Thy Salvation
May my heart be moved to seek
Another struggling brother
And point him to the way of the Cross
To that name that's like none other

For the Son of man....praise God He came
To seek and to save the lost
The closer I come to know You Lord
The greater I appreciate your cost
You shed your blood for my sin debt
And paid its fullest price
The forgiveness that flows in side of me
Gives praise for your Sacrifice

I've drawn nigh unto you Lord
And you've drawn nigh unto me
I sense the presence of your Spirit
With the spirit that lives in me
My refreshment comes from God
With a rejoicing that's surreal
I'm telling you staight up my friend
I've found a Friend that's real!

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
