So Much to be Thankful

So Much to be Thankful

So much to be thankful for
Lord I praise your name
The only eternal unchanging One
Forever you're the same
And daily in my heart I have
Some moments of thanksgiving
Continuing thankful for Thy Salvation
That changed my way of living

And bountiful is Your grace
Your mercy overflowing
O how much You care for me
This my heart is knowing
What blessed assurance that I have
It gives my heart a song
And causes me again to praise You Lord
Praise You all the day long

Simply astounding how much You love
Your love endures forever
And Heaven and earth give testimony
There never was One better
Above all names Thy precious name
That name of Jesus Christ
With every mention of that name
His blood our purchase price

Sin received it's recompense
The Saviour deemed it so
And every sin was blotted out
He washed it white as snow
So praise ignites this heart of mine
In the early morning hour
So thankful Lord for Your love
And Your Almighty power!

Sing my soul break forth in song
Behold that dying Lamb
Sufficient for sin's Sacrifice
Jesus the Great I Am
O yes I'm wrapped up in Him
His arms around me so
Never to be alone again
Jesus loves me this I know!

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
