Lord You WORK On The Inside

Lord You Work On The Inside

Lord You work on the inside
To bring an outward change
Hidden from the eyes of men
There You can rearrange
And bring conviction to a heart
To make an impression of sin
How much it goes against Your grain
And continually eats within

When your Word is analysed
And meditated upon
It should lead to the revelation
Of the love of Christ God's Son
And with a repentant heart
With eyes that now can see
A desire to call upon the Lord
And finally be set free

Then from the work on the inside
Comes forth an outward sign
A shout of...Hallelujah!
This Saviour now is mine
And God...He gets full glory
For the work that was done within
And each soul that knows Him as such
Can have victory over sin

Maybe He's working on you today
Have you sensed His presence there
Could be the new motivation you have
To turn to Him in prayer
Give assent to His dealings now
Say Lord..."whatever Thy will"
Come and dwell within my heart
While I'm waiting now and still

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
