THANK YOU LORD
 
Thank You Lord for a rejoicing heart
When trials and burdens come
When we can give them unto You
Thou blessed Holy One
Who bore our burdens on the cross
What sin that You did bare
You took the sins of the world               
To show how much You care
 
Sweetly doth Your children know
The removal of guilt and shame
Forgiveness and a joyful heart
Because we trust your name
Lord Jesus precious Lamb of God
That Christ of Calvary
Love still flows from Your heart
For sinners such as we
 
That light, Thou Light, still shines today
To this sin darkened world
Repent, believe, turn from sin
That gospel flag's unfurled
He lives, our Saviour Christ, He lives!
The Resurrection and the Life
Believe on Him today my friend
Be relieved of doubt and strife
 
Then joy, what joy, takes residence
In our Spirit filled heart
It gives us full assurance that
Our God shall not depart
His Word our source of solace
He will not leave us ever
Though heaven and earth shall pass away
God's Word abides forever!

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
