Father Lift My Vision

Father Lift My Vision

Father lift my vision
To where I would realize
That if I would be more faithful in prayer
Then You Lord would change lives
We are our brother's keeper
Your Word has led us to
For there it is written as You have said
Do unto others as they would do unto you

So Lord increase my faith
May my heart be fervent in prayer
For the Salvation of anyone lost
Make me Lord more willing to share
For in knowing Christ...is Salvation
Deliverance from the wrath to come
Leaving unbelief to embrace belief
Being saved by the Crucified one

What joy to know that Saviour
To good to keep to ourselves
May we be busy in doing Your will
Our lives not left on a shelf
So Father here I am wholly
Ready for service for Thee
Help me to keep in the Spirit of prayer
And live life as a visionary!

Hallelujah whata Saviour!

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
