My Heart Is Fixed

My Heart Is Fixed

My heart is fixed on You my God
And fastened there by faith
Your Word has brought me revelation
As to my sinful state
And the expression of Your great love
In the offering of Your Son
To take my place at Calvary
For the sins that I had done

I'm overwhelmed with your love
And it has broken my heart
And repentance came into being
Praise God a brand new start!
A new life birthed within my soul
Your Spirit's residence
With peace and joy beyond all measure
You gave me a second chance

Now with a burden I cannot dismiss
Others they must know
How forgiveness can be obtained
And sins washed white as snow
And that glorious home in Heaven
Prepared by Christ the Son
Who one day will return for us
What grand hope for everyone

Where O where is your heart fixed
Has it found true satisfaction
Our has the quality of your life
Been improved by a minor fraction
Seek ye the Lord while He may be found
And find new life in Him
He has fixed His great love on you
Now fix your love on 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
