Give, Give, Give, Joyfully Give

God loves a cheerful giver
So give back cheerfully
Hold on lightly to this worlds goods
They are held but temporarily.

From dust we came, dust we become
Till we get to meet our Maker
Give, give, joyfully give
Till you meet the undertaker.

Some will think you foolish
If you give while you live here
But God will think you a wiseman
For He loves a cheerful giver.

You may not see this side of heaven
What a treasure it is to bless
But up there yonder on the other side
Lies "Compound interest".

So lay up for yourself treasure in heaven
Give all you can while you live
Practice makes perfect, begin today
Give, give, joyfully give!

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
