Forgiveness is a flower

That’s adorned with Christian grace

Sending forth a sweet aroma

Noticeably seen on each ones face


A heart filled with compassion

Overflowing with such love

It cannot remain unmoving

When there’s prompting from above.


As it’s blooming in full colour

Blowing gently in the wind

There it stands in full assurance

Of the cleansing power within


Just a little seed of promise

Now a mature recipient

Of the goodness God’s provided

Of forgiveness He has sent.


The All Sufficient rendering

Of a Life without one sin

What a sacrificial offering

Providing, peace within.


There It’s blooming, see It’s splendor

Spreading glory from that place

Full surrender bringing blessings

O what wonder!  O what grace!

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
