IT’S TIME

It’s time to close the book of complaints

And to open the book of praise

Time to meditate on the blessings we have

And have had in all our past days.

This is the way to be rejoicing my friends

Look Up and don't look within

Keep your eyes focused on Jesus the Lord

What greater victory, than over sin.

Soon will come a song, a praise to His name

Such will the Spirit bring near

Rejoice again I say, and again I say rejoice

For whom hold that salvation so dear!

Yes, it’s time to close the book of complaints

And to open the book of praise

Time to meditate on the blessings we have

And have had in all our past days.

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
