Don't Let One Ounce

Don't Let One Ounce

Don't let one ounce of doubt
Live within my heart
But when and if it does arise
Lord bid it... Depart!
Help me live by faith each day
As You said the Just should
And I will seek You early Lord
As You wish I would

On my knees with prayerful heart
Bringing my petitions
As You the God of the impossible
Bring those prayers to fruition
With patience... longsuffering... and joyfulness
Awaiting on Your will
When in my anxious moments
Hearing Your.. "Peace be still"!

And praising in my spirit Lord
A genuineness of joy
With Your Holy Spirit prompting
A taste of Heaven's alloy
For holy... holy... holy are You precious Lord
And heaven and earth will pass away
But not Thy written Word

And that Word becoming flesh
For all the world to see
Jesus Christ Our God Messiah
The Man of Calvary
Who when He is lifted up
Will draw all men to Him
May my faith be fortified
Praise God I've trusted Him!

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
