Happy New Year Friend
Happy New Year friend
I mean that from my heart
Trust you will have a wonderful day
Each day that day doth start
To assure you that you will
Have that wonderful day
Would be the presence in your heart
Of Jesus Christ, the Way
He is just a breath away
Couldn't be closer more
Open your heart and let Him in
For Jesus is the door
Wonder what's is robbing you
Of true joy and peace?
Sin is the sure culprit of
The pain that does not cease
Don't buy books of tales of men
Who offer inner peace
But come yourself to Jesus Christ
Of whom the bible speaks
Do yourself a favour friend
Spend some time this year
Be reconciled to God Himself
T'will bring your heart great cheer!
I've discovered the priceless gem
The pearl that's of great price
A relationship above all other's
In knowing Jesus Christ
So if you want for better days
To arise each morning best
I pray you seek the Saviour who
Gives the sinner rest!

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
