MEEK AND MILD
 
How I wonder at the wonder of our God
That He sees us in Christ before we do
Circumstanced by Deity bound with Him eternally
With the wonder of that wonder I am awed
 
His Word's amazing, amazing grace
He Himself the living Word took my place
There on a cruel tree, paid sin's full penalty
Of sin's trail left behind me not a trace
 
Full forgiveness, I'm reconciled 
God's my Father, I'm His child
When my darkness met His light, all my sins they took full flight
Because of Him my Lord Jesus meek and mild
 
How I wonder at the wonder of our God 
That He sees us in Christ before we do 
Circumstances by Deity bound with Him eternally 
With the wonder of that wonder I am awed 
 
His Word's amazing, amazing grace 
He Himself the living Word took my place 
There on a cruel tree, paid sin's full penalty 
Of sin's trail left behind me not a trace 
 
Full forgiveness, I'm reconciled 
God's my Father, I'm His child
When my darkness met His light all my sins they took full flight 
Because of my Lord Jesus, meek and mild

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
