It Is So Wonderful

IT IS SO WONDERFUL




Father it is so wonderful


When You direct the day


Nothing misses Your attention


When we take time to pray


The things that seem insignificant


To others who are around


To us become real blessings


We live in Hallowed Ground




Our rejoicing is so precious


We know where joy comes from


Our strength is in the Lord


Through Him we overcome


Patiently we wait on Thee


For we can do none other


To us You are our closest Friend


More dearer than a brother




Souls that are lost You bring us too


They do not know that favour


We are but a link in the chain


That brings them to the Saviour


Our hearts are stedfast in the task


That You have called us to


Go ye forth and preach the Word


See what God can do!




Lord my heart still beats afresh


For souls who are lost


An never ending fervent love


To lift up Calvary's Cross


Where Thy Son was crucified


His blood shed for all men


May I see some souls take heed


Be truly born again!

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
