O Soul That Lies In Dormancy

O soul that lies in dormancy
Come feel the warmth of God
You are standing to far off
For the heat to do any good
Find yourself a comfy chair
Sit back... relax a bit
Oh!...and don't forget your Bible
For you'll find true warmth in it

The love of God will be made manifest
It will be a feast to your soul
As the Word of God becomes alive to you
And the Holy Spirit takes control
You will feel the warmth of love
As those around Lord Jesus did
When He forgave people for their sins
And enabled them to truly live

Watch the lame man walk...
Look!...the blind men do see!
The woman at the well Spirit filled
And now living rejoicingly
The empty tomb celebration
Definitely rejoicing there
All heart warming stories of Christ
The Bible tells them here

God has a great heart of love
It can't help but to spill over
And warm the cockles of your heart
Warms it over and over
It's an inward campfire to you
To the awakening of your soul
Don't leave it in dormancy any longer
When Lord Jesus can make you whole

Think of the Word of God as Christ the Word
He'll be near you as you read
Ready and available on your behalf
To God to interceed
Take a moment and give a prayer
Then give a prayer of praise
God be merciful to me a sinner
I thank You for showing me the way!

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
