How Often It's Hard

How often it's hard to stay close to you Lord
As close Lord as You'd wish us to be
So often we fail You in our daily walk Lord
To keep in fellowship Lord with Thee
Praise God Lord ...You continually pass by
And move us by your drawing power
Making us again to reflect on your love
And Your monumental Sacrificial Hour!

As You've said Lord...You'll never forake us
What a promise Lord to hold dear
When daily trials and testings come upon us
Praise God Lord we know You are near...
Nothing can satisfy Lord like Your Presence
Praise God for the faith You supply
Picking us up again and enduing by Your Spirit
With a bountiful unending supply!

Amen for the day that the Lord has made
Let the earth rejoice and be glad
God daily bends His ear from Heaven
He knows every heart that is sad
Find your joy in the Risen Saviour
Hallelujah for that precious Lamb!
For Christ has made Heaven real to me!
Praise God for the Great I Am!

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
