Gary James Smith

Rookie (Sept.22,1946 / Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario)



If you want a life of joy
With peace and real true living
Begin today a brand new way
Simply start forgiving

All the things you can remember
Bring them to the plate
Bitterness, pride, and jealousies
Certainly bring the hate

Lay them at the Master's feet
Experience a taste of Heaven
Here Lord, I bring them all to Thee
Simply start forgiving

Watch the glow upon the face
The heart that's filled with peace
The songs of joy emulating from
Tongues that use to cease

Hear the songs of Zion sung
No temporary grace
Simply start forgiving
Transformation's taken place

Free thine heart from shackled sins
Tis the Master's way
Father forgive them, they know not what they do
Shall ours be different? Nay!

Triumphant hearts lead the praise
They want the world to know
Simply start forgiving
Tis the Master's way you know!
