Lord Send The Arrow

Lord send the arrow of Your Word
And smite some heart today
May it hit with penetrating power
To turn a soul Your way
Sharper than any two-edged sword
Power for our soul's quickening
To make one alive unto God
And an alertness to deal with our sin

You know exactly where bullseye is
You know what's needed to bring it on home
You know the waywardness of our hardened heart's 
How far off we even have roamed
Yet Your still hot on our case
You know of the dire consequence
If we turn away from the Saviour's love
And decide not to repent

Friend God has you in His sights
There's no escaping Him
He will send His Word right speedily
To convict your heart of sin
He's in it for the long haul
In fact!...For eternity!
Has He reached your heart today?

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
