Dressed To Serve

Poem By Michael P. Johnson

Let there be Light within your heart
Let darkness wear a shroud
Allow it to the grave depart
And be in Christ endowed

Let evil beat a swift retreat
Let shame be yours no more
Receive the truth at Jesus’ feet
Where death walks out the door

Pay no regard to pompous fools
To rebels in disguise
Obey in Christ my sacred rules
And in His name arise

Rise up and take the cross I give
Take up the sword of Light
Go spread the news that others live
And join the righteous fight

You feel my love, you understand
You know my saving grace
You see the evil in your land
And every far off place

Put on the shoes of peace my child
Belt truth around your waist
That other may be reconciled
Divide my word in haste

Open the eyes of those yet blind
The facts of Christ impart
With true salvation on your mind
And love within your heart

Be firm my child in all my ways
In righteousness stand true
Remaining strong throughout your days
And join my faithful few

I Trust In Jesus

Before this body turns to dust
Before this world I leave
Upon The Lord I’ve placed my trust
Upon The Rock I’ll cleave

Wars, Wars, Wars

There’s so much hatred round the place
The world seems not to care
For though we travel into space
There’s fighting in the air

A Cry In The Dark

How deep in life I had to fall
Living a constant lie
But then with back against the wall
I couldn't help but cry

A Word To Parasites

Some spend themselves though never groan
Whilst Jesus' sheep they feed
They deem God's money not their own

{1} The Spirit’s Touch

“Lord, let my praise scale Your mountain
Let Your grace be a fountain
Allow Your truth fill unsaved ears
There to abide eternal years


How foolish are your songs of pride
When Jesus seeks to come inside
Humble yourself reject your shame
Receive my Spirit’s purging flame
