We Need Our Lord

We Need Our Lord

We need our Lord praise God He's there
There's never an interruption
The only time we think Him afar
Is when we live with corruption
We must confess any known sin
To get back into fellowship
Then the faithful and the just one
He will take care of it

It is our loss at times as such
The Holy Spirit is grieved
When we choose walking in the flesh
Rather then in the Spirit's ease
For when walking in the Spirit
You won't fulfill the lust of the flesh
You will want to live for God's glory
Not for a cause of worthlessness

For this old world will pass away
And all the lusts wherein
When God will completely eradicate
Any semblance of sin
Nor will the power of its torment
Have any memory
For we shall be with Jesus Christ
What glorious liberty

O yes we need the Lord
We need Him every hour
He is ever interceeding for us
What awesomeness and power
To have an Advocate such as Him
There at the Father's throne
Gives us hope... glorious hope
Soon we will be home!

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
