O Lord Today Bless Me

O LORD TODAY BLESS ME
 
In our offering to God He requires perfection
No half hearted offering, His Spirit gives detection
If we are to be blessed ,we must be a blessing
Clothed in His Righteousness is to be our dressing
 
Constantly alert to all of our surroundings
Conscious that the devil is aware of our aboundings
And as that roaring lion who goeth about to devour
Praise God we have the victory through Jesus Christ our Power
 
We are to die daily, I am crucified with Christ
We do not live unto ourselves, but to give to others new life
As they see us in Jesus, concerned about our brother
And see a life of yieldness, a life not like any other
 
Should surely be an attraction, a magnet if you please
To draw them to that Saviour, to bring them to their knees
So Lord make our lives a blessing, make us doubly blessed
Who bring our offering daily to have that offering blest!
 
And, in the hearts, of all our friends and neighbours
As we continue to pray , kindly show them favour
Surrounded by your love Lord, sufficient is Thy grace
With that mandate "Always", we shall see Thy face
 
What power in Thy Word Lord, Who spoke and it was done
God the Father, Spirit, and Jesus Christ the Son
You have given us the honour of, carrying out your Word
By giving it as Bread of Life and Water to this world
 
We who are recipients of who You were and Are
Have been entrusted to share that news to those both near and far
Praise God you've planted, in our hearts, that seed of faith in You
And multiply it by Your grace, for the work You've called us too
 
I can sing "Hallelujah" for I have been redeemed
With joy I face life daily, for You Lord are my dream
No cause to seek another, none else has died for me
Here I am Your offering, O Lord today, "Bless Me"

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
