Canadian Tribute to America

Other Poems by Gary James Smith

America, as I stand afar
And look at thee this day
I see a nation, resolute
And determined now to pray

That flag, Old Glory, lifted high
With reference to your God
I weep as weep you do
For what happened on your sod

With strong armaments of faith
And fuselage full of prayer
Our God will reprimand those
Who have brought you such despair.

With patience and resolve, to see
Just! True justice done!
This world’s fine Land of Liberty.
Begins this war to win.

With “In God We Trust” as coinage print
As in God we trust in flesh
No greater power can be for us
We trust in nothing less.

Your fortitude, a nation birthed
By men who believed The Word
To think that you can lose this war
That thought, is most absurd.

As we watch your spirits knit as one
With open brotherly love
May You dear God, “Bless America”.
As You watch them from above.

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
