We enjoy the light of the sun
That welcomes us each day
And the warmth that it gives
To bless us on our way
We've been genetically formed
To express our gratitude
At the rising of the sun
Good has deemed we should

I've been chatting with someone
On a cloudy day
And then they exclaim " the sun is out"
Hip, hip, hooray!
There's a spring in their step
Now they're walking happily
Just by having the sun shine through
Transformed their mood you see

Now a spiritual application
I hope that you don't mind
I think that God will bless it
For He's so very kind
The storm that your experiencing
That's clouding up your day
There's a ray of hope available
The Son can save today

He will be your Son shine
In this world He is the Light
He'll take you from the darkest place
Protect you in the night
His forgiveness will be refreshing
Like a breath of fresh air
Receive this Son...know new life
Enjoy...your God is near!

Let Him be your Son shine
Let Him live within
By that blessed Holy Spirit
When you're born again
It could be pouring rain outside
So dark you cannot see
But He shall remain the Son within
That gets... ( a Hallelujah ) from me!

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
