May My Way

May my way be Thy way Lord
A surrendering of my will
To wait upon Thy Spirit Lord
To enjoy your " peace be still"
Learning to cast more swiftly
My every care upon You
Abiding in wonderful fellowship
As we walk each day on through

Practicing faith more faithfully
Pondering more thoughtful in prayer
Expanding my horizon for service Lord
Submitting to servanthood there
Enjoying the wonder of Salvation
Knowing my sins have all been forgiven
Walking with a  hope of a brighter tomorrow 
Knowing I'm bound now for Heaven

Leaning not unto mine own understanding
But trusting You in all of my ways
I'm finding that the more I do that
My heart becomes filled with Thy praise
The joy of You Lord is my strength
For in You...praise God I am strong
For You have defeated my chiefest foe
I can praise You for that all the day long

Shepherd me Lord in my walk
As I trust in You Lord each day
Make my spirit to fall into line
As Your Spirit leads the way
My fortification ...deep in prayer
Your Word have I hid in my heart
 Living with a passion now to share
That Jesus can live in your heart!

Hallelujah what a Saviour !

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
