Dear Father in heaven I thank You so
That You will never let me go
Even when my old nature rises up again
You are there to comfort me then

Also dear Lord in spite of my sin
Your love waiteth still, You say "Come enter in!"
What loss I sustain when you are not Lord
The times when I slip, which I ill can afford

You continually wait till I start confessing
Then once again I receive Your true blessing
I thank You dear Lord

Dear Father in heaven I thank You so
That You are all I need to know
None other friend sticketh closer than a brother
There is just You Lord, there is none Other

Wasteful and worthless those times when I stray
While Your eager to worship with me in my day
So blind can I be Lord to see Your true will
While I'm looking to self and pleasing me still

So come rescue me Lord, I know You can do it
Help me to seek Thee and swiftly ensue it
I thank You dear Lord

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
