Do you need a change of scenery
In your heart today
Are things dark and dismisal
Nothing going your way
Deepfelt are those feelings
Signs of emptiness
Then cheer up fellow traveller
I'll tell you how to be blessed

First there is that matter
You were not born by chance
There is a great Designer
Who can change your circumstance
You've seldom ever thought of Him
But He's the One to seek
He can give you peace within
And nights of restful sleep

Take some concentration
Focus on this thought
Without God "where would I be"
That will help a lot
Then take that thought still further
"What if I were to die?"
Would I be spending "eternity"
In the sweet...bye and bye

O God I need Your Son light
In my soul today
I've been a lonesome traveller
I need You as my Stay
I'm tired of all this darkness
I just want to be free
Come Lord Jesus into my heart
And change it's scenery!

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
