Gratefulness is present on the mantel of my heart 
I always seek to praise You Lord
For the gift You did impart
Eternal life as a present possession 
Hallelujah for the Son
Fresh every day our Heavenly manna
As the Spirit leads us on

Gratefulness may I display In my daily walk
Gratefulness as well my Lord
In my daily talk
For You have wrought a change in me
In that I cannot deny
For when I came by faith to You
You gave me grace's supply

Gratefulness the fragrance  thereof
For You Lord loveth praise 
For Your's is the Kingdom...the power and the glory
Praise God...the Ancient of Days
All of our days are in Your hands
May we Lord...be found faithful 
And never forgetting the pulse in our heart's 
Reminding us to be grateful!

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
