God Cannot Help

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


God you cannot help but wait to bless
A needy soul today
Your eyes are seeking daily Lord
For someone who will pray
All the criteria that is needed
To initiate their part
Is to come unto You
With a broken and contrite heart

Then You rush to their aid
You become their sure defence
When they come in humbleness
And genuine repentance
O for heart's to recognize
The goodness of You Lord
And check out all Your promises
Found within Thy Word

For You are great and greatly Lord
Do we need to praise
The Salvation that You love to give
Still to men today
For the cross still is present
The empty tomb as well
The sacrificial death of Jesus Christ
That story still wondrous to tell

So dear Lord draw men unto You
So You can truly bless
And strip them of their unbelief
And clothe with Righteousness
A righteousness not of their own
But through faith in Christ the Son
Let the whole world see Thy work
For You're the Saving One!

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
