Be the Breath of Fresh Air

Other Poems by Gary James Smith



Be the breath of fresh air

To another soul today

Give out a friendly smile

Listen to what they say

You could turn a life around

By just a kindly word

Share with them the gospel

They've probably never heard


Add prayer to that mixture

Be sure to wait on the Lord

Wise as serpents harmless as doves

According to God's word

Listen with a hearing ear

Keep your words at bay

Waiting for the appropriate time

God will give you what to say


The Holy Spirit loves it

When we are in God's will 

Seeking to serve the master

And our heart's are still

Waiting on the Saviour 

For heaven sent direction

Watching over the soul's of men

With true and sincere affection 


Breathe on us Holy Spirit

Ignite the flames again

Fan the fires of revival

May we seek for men

Remembering our condition

Lost and going to hell

Then receiving salvation 

Now with our souls. ..all's well


What mission there before us

The harvest fields are white

Work well yet it still is day

For soon cometh...night

What answer will we give him

When our race is done

Or shall we hear His blessed words

Well done my son!

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
