When Love Pounds Away

I Love When Love Pounds Away

I love when love pounds away
And breaks our stubborn will
And makes us see with eyes of faith
That Jesus loveth still
There is no heart so hard that He
Cannot make it anew
His love constantly pounding away
To make a brand new you

Love can take those pieces of life
And put them back together
Now it may seem a puzzle to you
But He above all... knows better
So don't throw your hands up in the air
As if He's not in control
But keep your heart settled in Him
He brings peace to the soul

You may not recognize His love
It comes in many forms
It might be an act of a stranger
Or something out of the norm
But here a little there a little
His love keeps pounding away
The hammer may be silent but
It will definely have it's way

Can you hear His still small voice
Love is on march
His banner over us is love
The sky displays that arch
And in the passion for our soul's
It will find a place to stay
A guarantee from the Hammer bearer
Who in love pounds away!

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
