Thanksgiving Is A Gift

Thanksgiving Is A Gift

Thanksgiving is a gift
I know when mine began
When I became so thankful
For the pardoning of my sin
My soul found liberation
In the gifting of God's grace 
What a wonderful...wonderful...wonderful day
When I sought the Master's face

God's Word became my entrance
To a life I never knew
I found my place as a sinner
And learned what I must do
Repentance as a movement
My soul soon realized 
No longer would I be held captive 
And constantly agonized

Praise God for my deliverance 
Salvation as my gift
My heart became instantly thankful
My soul no longer adrift
I knew I'd found my anchor
My steadfast hope and praise
Hallelujah's as my mentors
To recall that joyful day!!!

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
