Thank You Lord For Your Gentle Leading

Thank you Lord for your gentle leading
You are not a hard task master
You lead by mercy...love and grace
What better ingredients to ask for
You have our best interest at heart
You know the way that we go 
Helping us to be on the lookout for
Struggling and needy lost souls

Who ever thought that we could know You
For such the Saviour You are
You O Lord the mighty God 
Who has named each shining star
We can never fully discover 
The mysteries of Heaven and Earth
But praise God we can discover You Lord
On the day of our Spiritual birth

Sin has a label of such damnation
And is the cause of our physical death
Wise are we when we find true repentance
And hallelujah's emit from our breath
Thank you Lord for your gentle leading
I'm a follower now of the Lamb
I have embraced Your so great Salvation 
And I know You now as I Am!!!

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
