YOU BREATHED INTO MAN THE BREATH OF LIFE
 
You breathed into man the breath of life
And a living soul he became
We are breathing still today
We breathe to praise Your name
Our hearts are made to pump the blood
That keeps our bodies fit
Yet some men still disbelieve
And will hear, none of it
 
Yet Lord You are so merciful
Your grace much more abounding
While sin takes its toll on men today
Your patience is astounding
Longsuffering is an attribute
No longsuffering One as Thee
You hold back all Your wrath and wait
And love abundantly
 
Abundant life you give to those
Who trust in Your blessed name
And those who do are sure to tell
They'll never be the same
A witness to your great love
Poured out at Calvary
Where Jesus shed His precious blood
And died for you and me
 
Blest O doubly blest we are
Who trust in Jesus name
Who are reconciled now to God
O praise His glorious name
I can feel a touch of Heaven
My soul has been set free
Sin's released its stranglehold
For Jesus lives in me!

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
