Wow....how this year is soon to end
Way to fast for me my friend
Too many things left undone
Now too late to do each one
But praise God I'm not dismayed
For my hope ...in Him is laid
I'm resting in my blessed Lord
And still relying on His Word
That hope that gives my heart such joy
With peacefulness ...A precious alloy

I feel His love for me each day
A love that never fades away
But by the Spirit reassured
I am secure...it's in God's Word
Eternal life...my present possession
Heaven bound at my life's cessation
O thank you Lord for so great Salvation
It brought to my soul a great awakening

Living life is so much better
In Him is whom...God's love letter
For the Bible tells me so
Jesus loves me...This I know
Sin had had it's time with me
Trying to steal my liberty
But "free in Christ" I truly am
Because I trusted in the Lamb

Now righteousness is having it's day
For Jesus Christ...He is my Stay
He is the kindly Shepherd come
From the little town of Bethlehem
And numbers our days by His power
Put your trust in Him this hour
A few more days til this year is done
His offer still stands!...Trust in the 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
