Lord How Do We Get

Lord How Do We Get

Lord how do we get people to respond
With regard to the Holy Spirit
When they don't read the Bible at all
And they have no desire to hear it
We know that Your Word holds the key
To that wondrous door of faith
Where every sinner who inquires 
Can read..." the Lord's thus saiths"

It seems we're up against a brick wall
In times of our evangelizing
When people take life O so for granted
When they should be really realizing
That time is short to make a decision
That will determine their eternity
While Satan tries to snuff them out
The Father of lies is he

Lord You know our heart's desire
Is to see others come to know You Lord
You hear the prayers of all of our heart's 
And record them every word
Open the door of opportunity 
To present the gospel today
And bring it on home to a heart
With a soul that needs to be saved!

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
