Lord You Burst

Lord You Burst

Lord You burst my cloud of despair
And broke through with Your wonderful peace
By Your Spirit I was made aware
Praise God for Your work of grace 
I knew You had touched me in my heart
To the deepest core of my being
Little did I know how my prayer of desparation
Would soon change my innermost feelings

By Your providential leading Lord
You brought me to the exact spot
Where on my knees I cried out to You
You're my "Special Forget Me Not"
For I shall never ever forget
Your bringing me to the Cross
Every scenario You had prearranged
My Hallelujah's aren't for naught!

That joy is still so evident Lord
That... knoweth my soul  right well
For I find myself often whistling along
To some hymn that I know so well
You engineered a real change in me
When You visited with Your Resurrection power
For the very same Spirit that raised You up
Will raise me as well in my rapture hour!

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
