Lord When You Surprise

Lord When You Surprise

Lord when You surprise it's  no surpise
Especially when in a song
You know our heart's and how they yearn
To seek You all along
You Lord know our journeyings
From the beginning to the end
You know when our pathway is straight
And as well as each coming bend

All the unsettlings in our heart's 
The prayers that are fastened down
Always adding to the list
The friends and the neighbors around
Praise God You've given us a heart
As a transplant by Your Spirit
Now it has been captured by Your love
With our need of the gospel to share it

Even though You walk Lord in our midst
There's darkness still at bay
And unless souls reach out to You
Darkness will be there stay
So many things now in this old world 
To bring a storm to one's soul
Praise God I'm anchored fast in Christ
The true Lover of men's soul

There's a Light still shining from Calvary
His blood can wash whiter than snow
The Light of the world the precious Lord Jesus
Seek Him while He's available
In His Light see Resurrection...
For it spelled doom to Satan's hour
I love that I know the world's Uppertaker
Who wrought victory through faith's power!

Such a simple illusration Lord
That You have left us at the Cross
One dying theif went to Paradise
While the other stayed eternally lost
Where in life are you hanging?
When death is but a breath away
Praise God I'll meet the repentant thief
Who believed on Christ that day!!!

Today is your day of opportunity 
While it is yet called today
Prayer is waiting for your response
Will you invite Christ in today?
Begin to glory in the Cross
For it was God's Supreme Sacrifice...
For He gave of His Son...His only begotten
Hallelujah for Jesus Christ!!!

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
