Our Heart's Are The Closest

Our Heart's Are The Closest 

Our heart's are the closest thing to God
He has made it to perfection
For not only does it pump our blood
But is the very seat of all of our affections
The Word of God has descriptiveness
In regards to the heart
We're to love the Lord our God whole-heartedly 
And from it's wickedness to depart

Maybe you haven't read the Bible
Just as to the heart's content
Check out Jeremiah 17:9
And you'll see just what I meant
Because we're born with a sin nature
A result of the disobedience of Adam and Eve
Our heart's are forever under God's surveillance 
As to every thought...every word ...every deed!

This is the very heart of the matter
There's nowhere to hide from God
You can't escape His watchfulness
Your very movements are understood
Does your life need reconciliation
When it comes to thoughts of your Maker
These are grave decisions to be made
Before you greet the undertaker!

But cheer up my friend I have great news 
Christ has undertook for you
He went to an old rugged Cross at Calvary
To give you a heart anew
When your sin is acknowledged 
And you ask for forgiveness of God
The blood of the Lamb is sufficient
 For in your place Christ has stood!

Now a tribute of praise is in order
For how worthy is that Lamb
Who undertook on your behalf
So you could know the Great I Am
There will be a sweet bye and bye
When from this world you will depart
All because of the Lord Jesus Christ
Who can change a sinner's heart!!!

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
