Help Us Lord

Help Us Lord

Help us Lord to see ourselves
For the sinners that we are
And how we've kept aloft from You
Which distance is very far
Little have we in our minds
The greatness of You God
By Your Spirit draw us nearer
And to the reading of Your Word

There's not a library on this whole earth 
Which could contain the sum of it
Yet you've inspired by Your power
The author of every writ
Yet the writing which tops them all
The faith packed Word of God
Is often left to gather dust
Therefore often misunderstood

Bring us Lord to search its pages
From the first book to the last
From Genesis to Revelation
Prophetic future from the past
To see that blood wooven tapestry
For the forgiveness of our sin
And bring us to a will of repentance 
Then we shall be born again

Of all the books of earth I treasure
There's one above all else
I too once had it gathering dust
And left upon a shelf
But praise God for that enlightenment day
When I saw Christ for who He was
How great God's love for me a sinner!
Now I own His worthy cause!

Hallelujah what a 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
