How Eager Is the Heart to Hear

HOW EAGER IS THE HEART TO HEAR
 
How eager is the heart to hear
A telltale sign of grace
An ear than listens for a sound
Of circumstances taking place
A little rustling of the leaves
Being shaken by the wind
A hungring for the word of God
A revival to begin
 
The hidden prayers of saints abound
To bring God's glory in
A manifesting of His love
Forgiveness for our sin
Burdened hearts for people lost
Evangelistic souls
Not afraid to share God's Word
IT'S power already knows
 
In the streets and marketplace
Are His labourers working
Standing up to the plate
Not a servant shirking
GOD will bless, will bless HIS WORD
We are but to share it
Watch and wait upon our God
For what He doth prepare IT

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
