For Length Of Days

For length of days I thank you Lord
For you have set our time
That we may come to know You Lord
And live a life sublime
To enjoy the power to pray
And wait upon your will
With great anticipation wait
Enthralled with "Peace be still"

A life you've given to celebrate
Just who You are each day
And render back our thankfulness
You are the only Way
Not a God of confusion
As to where that we should turn
But You've left us Your Word as testimony
To which our hearts should yearn

O praise You Lord O praise You
You've come as Christ the Son
And have given us a genuine token
Of Your love for everyone
Now of great significance
The breath we breathe each day
A reminder of that wondrous promise
You shall return one day!

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
