He's The God Of New Beginnings 

He's the God of new beginnings
May yours begin today
Leave off of struggling on your own
When there's a better Way
The Lord knows of your burdens
Your habits and your bend
He is as near as a prayer away
Make yours an uttering...

God be merciful to me a sinner
I know I need You Lord
I've put You off so many a time
And haven't read Your Word
I see Your hand around me
I've tasted of Your grace
When I deserved Your wrath instead
Your mercy has taken place...

Draw me unto You Lord
Until I submit my will
And come to You in full surrending
To know...Your (peace be still!)
Make today my new tomorrow 
For my hope is in You Lord
I'm optimistically praying now
That You will heed my words...

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
