Today I Dined in Gratitude

Today i dined in gratitude

For what the Lord has done

And feasted on the Word of God

Through Jesus Christ His Son

 

I've tasted of those heavenly things

Which makes the sinner whole

What satisfaction there I found

What nourishment for the soul

 

Here I find my meat, my drink

To quench my hungry heart

Filled with wonder of His love

Whom righteiousness imparts

 

Soon us sinners saved by grace

Through Him the Great I Am

Will be feasting with our Lord

The marriage supper of the Lamb

 

Hungering and thirsting for righteousness

Make this my daily prayer

Feasting at thy throne of grace

With You the server there

 

Make me mete to meet Thee Lord

To serve You in this place

To know by faith Thy love for me

Until I see your face

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
