I Come as a Thankful

I Come as a Thankful

I come as a thankful person
And give praise to You my God
For the revelation of Thyself
In Jesus Christ the Lord
Your humility to humanity
The Word becoming flesh
And taking sin upon Thyself
The whole world thus to bless

And in a glorious fashion
To bring Satan sure defeat
You rose again to display Your power
I worship at your feet
Your Spirit still prevailing
For victory over sin
I thank You and I praise You Lord
That You now dwell within

And daily is my practice
At the beginning of each day
To lift my voice in praise to You
The True and Living Way
For great and greatly to be praised
By each and everyone
Are You my God my faithful Friend
In the Father...the Spirit...the Son

So here is thanks again to You
For just for Who You are
None else can forgive our sin
None else we know so Pure
In all of our unrighteousness
You alone can say..."Be ye clean!"
And give us means whereby we can
In Jesus name...amen!

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
