The Gift of Forgiveness

May you experience the gift of forgiveness
And begin to pass it around
PAUSE and reflect on past misdemeanors
Praise God for "new birth" ground
For in that glorious Resurrection
When Jesus rose again
All of our sin...past,present,and future
Cannot sever our stand with Him

O the delight to be delivered
From Satan's darkness realm
And live in the light of the glorious gospel
With Jesus at the helm
Where He leads I will follow
Lead me on dear Lord
With the chief desire of my heart
Being to obey Thy Word

With inspiration by the Spirit
To joy... joy and rejoice
And share the blest tidings of Salvation
While I still have voice
Above any other thing Lord I do ask
For the greatest gift one could give
Not for wealth nor earthly riches
But that I might FORGIVE!

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
