I'm Still Thankful

I'm Still Thankful

I'm still thankful O so thankful
For that blessed day
When I called upon the Lord
And He washed my sin away
Such a cleansing flowed on through me
All my burdens
Not one sin owed to my account
He paid them every one

And joy replaced this troubled heart
A peace I never knew
Came upon me tandemly
And brought this sinner through
And I received a blessing such
I never felt before
God's own Spirit my Baptiser
I entered heaven's Door

And Christ became my All in All
And all to Him I owe
Who makes the vilest sinner clean
And washes him white as snow
Still from the cross His voice is heard
"Father please forgive!"
And whomsoever believes on me
He surely now shall live!

So thankfulness is part and parcel
In my life today
There is not a day go by
But that I think to pray
And give all praise to Jesus Christ
Who gives so great Salvation
Who delivers from the dire of sin
And grants me jubilation!

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
