You breathed into man the breath of life

And a living soul he became

We are breathing still today

We breathe to praise Your name

Our hearts are made to pump the blood

That keeps our bodies fit

Yet some men stilldisbelieve

And will hear, none of it

Yet Lord You are so merciful

Your grace much more abounding

While sin takes its toll on men today

Your patience is astounding

Longsuffering is an attribute

No longsuffering One as Thee

You hold back all Your wrath and wait

And love abundantly

Love this world had never known

If Jesus had not come

For God so loved the world He made

He gave His only Son

That Son obeyed His Father's will

And went to Calvary's cross

A forgiving prayer came from those lips

Who caused Him such a loss

His loss of life He took full pain

Sin's punishment and penalty

Were nailed to the cross that day

He paid the debt for me

But death and hell and sin itself

Could not withhold the power

For in three days up from the grave He arose

God's Resurrection Hour

In the early morn at the dawn of day

The stone had a big suprise

For two angels sat upon that rock

And waited for startled eyes

As Mary came to seek the Lord

At first she had great fear

But the angels gave her cheerful words

He's Risen, He is not here

The disciples next, when they heard

They ran into the tomb

They saw His linen clothes set down

They new it was the truth

And He is still the Truth today

Though some men disbelieve

Look my friend to Calvary's Cross

Look! And then believe.................!

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
