I know I've had angels attending
In some of my life's circumstance
It couldn't have been other reasons
I was given a second chance
So thankful was I on occasions
My God was watching over me
I gratefully offered Him praises
For saving a sinner like me

I know I've had angels attending
When some of the hymns have been sung
When my heart has welled up with tears
And the overflow has begun
I can hardly sing for the crying
As tears fall fast on the page
They know the worth of that Saviour
Who is the Rock of all Age

I know I've had angels attending
When the times come that I pray
With God Himself superintending
Which angel is sent my way
As Peter was freed from the prison
And John at Patmos to write
Praise God I have angels attending
Guarding by day and by night!

I know I've had angels attending
When loved ones are called home
When grief has paid me a visit
Not one I'd necessarily welcome
Then my heavenly Father
Who doeth all things well
Swiftly sends His angels of grace
Attending me...I can tell!

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
