SEE THOSE HAPPY TEARS


 


I love to see those happy tears


Rolling down a face


After watching performances


Done with amazing grace


Just the anticipation 


Of a loss or win


The expression on other faces


As they take it in


 


Then the verdict dictated


The crowd is on their feet


Happy tears are everywhere 


As people begin to weep


The performance is outstanding 


Thousands witness that


The joy upon the faces


Attesting to that fact


 


God has built us wondrously


We are made to rejoice


In every use of talent


Especially with the voice


Some rise above the others


Definitely cream of the crop


Happy tears giving recognition of


Their performance was over the top


 


We weep with those who weep


And rejoice with those who rejoice


Praise God for entertainment venues


That bring to us that choice 


I've watched some great performances


They have brought me to my feet


I've tasted tears of joy as such


It's absolutely neat!


 


Then that grand performance 


With tears of joy we'll sing


That song implanted within our heart


That gives due praise to Him


Worthy is that Lamb


That Lamb for sinner's slain


Our rejoicing is complete


Praise God Lord Jesus came!

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
