Here Am I Lord
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



Here I am Lord, send me

A faith imputed prayer

For a stranger in a pilgrim land

To live, we know not where

Listening for that voice

Heeding the Lord's command

This is the way, walk ye in it

I have you in My hand


The Spirit giving direction

The still small voice of the Lord

Being in a family of agreement

A bond of prayer accord

Hearts praising at the mention

Of Jesus' precious name

A people changed on the inside

Are never outwardly the same


Our faith, a great adventure

Each day a new born bliss

Never ending prayer requests

Not one that we should miss

And time, it flies so swiftly

From one day to the next

But God's grace supplies sufficient

Our spirit's are seldom vexed


O Lord, You Lord are wonderful

You give us cause to sing

To break forth in exultation

To You, our Lord, our King

Joy tears flood our faces

For we've been doubly blessed

You took our sins upon Yourself

And gave our soul's Sure Rest

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
