So Many Things

So Many Things

So many things we take for granted
Why even the very breath that we breathe
Not realizing it was given of God
So that we might literally live
For God breathed into man the brearth of life
And He became a living soul
O that we would offer back praise to Him
For how worthy is the Lord

All my being because of Him
My heart...my soul...my strength
He commands that we should love Him
Use our minds to that length 
When you know Him you will love Him
It pays to find Him friend
For there's not a Friend like the lowly Jesus
Who can assure that sin will end!

In Him is life and joy and peace
A product of faith's transmission
The Holy Spirit our Comforter
When we allow Christ's admission 
What a relief repentance brings
Giving God full allowance
To rearrange our lives for Him
Not only for now but its balance!

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
