Press Me into Thy Presence Lord

PRESS ME INTO THY


PRESENCE LORD


 


Press me into thy presence Lord


Don't let a day go by


That I won't have a time alone


With You, with heartfelt cry.


 


Not just a few swift moments there


But stay, until You're done


Doing that work of grace in me


Because, of Christ the Son.


 


Renewed now in spirit for service


With Your presence I leave


To face the trials and tribulations


Your path has set for me.


 


Thy Word so precious to my soul


Is hidden within my heart


So sin cannot have dominion now


My Saviour has bid it depart.


 


Your constant presence through each day


My assurance that You care


So thank You Lord again for that


That precious time, of prayer.

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
