Heed the Call

Another Christmas come and gone
Loved ones still, unsaved
Opportunities to share the Word of God
And tell of His saving Grace.

A prayer that God would touch their hearts
Draw them to the Lord
A prayer that they would see less of self
See that Christ - adored.

A little simple love and care
Tenderness of heart
To show to them the greatest love
Our Saviour did impart.

That God above should so allow
This precious charge to man
Delights my soul, what wondrous love
In God’s almighty plan.

The greatest gift, the greatest love
The greatest life of all
To be used of God again and again,
To bring salvations call.

Another year, another chance
Another soul to tell
Oh, give me Lord a contrite heart
Warning others about hell.

May I see not my needs only
And leave others cast aside
But may I enter into their suffering
Joys and sacrifice.

May your blessing be on my life
As I surrender all to You.
May this New Year bring dear Lord
A sinner born anew.

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
