Celebration of Forgiveness
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

CELEBRATION OF FORGIVENESS

A continual celebration of forgiveness
Should reign in the Christians' heart
A rejoicing spirit of thankfulness
For what His Spirit doth impart
Intertwined in fellowship
My blessed Lord and I
Face each day's commitments
With power that's from on High.

Faith filled steps of service
He knows the path I take
He knows I'm trusting fully
For He maketh no mistake
The gentle Spirit's leading
In that I safely rest
No ruffling of my feathers
By any human's breath.

But deep the bounds of mercy
How full, the heart of grace
Retreat I to my Father's arms
I'm strengthened in that Place.
O love, so pure and tender
Compassionate and strong
I stand firm in Thy loving Kindness
That Place for which I long.

There, exuberant with silence
But inwardly in prayer
I take my burdens to the Lord
I'm swift to leave them there.
Moment by moment enjoying
That fellowship divine
And marvel at the thought that I
Am His and He is mine.

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
