I Give Thanks

I Give Thanks

I give thanks for the smallest of things
That's the joy of the Lord in me
He says to give thanks in everything
I try to do that most faithfully
Thank you Lord always comes from these lips
Yes I'm guilty of thankfulness
O what a Saviour to be thankful for
Who died for my sin no less

I'm always on the lookout for
Something to be thankful about
And sometimes when I'm touched by the goodness of God
Hallelujah I just want to shout
O He is amazing...amazing I say
To watch over little old me
But I know in my heart He's an ever present God
How I praise Him for Calvary!

With a love that is hankering to deliver us from sin
My God has a bountiful supply
Of grace and mercy and forgiveness to extend
When He feels the ache of our cry
O what a thankful heart He has made
Upon my repentance day
When I saw my sin in the light of His Word
My thanksgiving Spirit would stay!!!

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
