Drink Of Wisdom’s Fount

Poem By Michael P. Johnson

When Cain slew Abel with his hand
When blood first drenched the earth
Cain was expelled from God’s fair land
For giving hatred birth

Atomic bomb and aeroplane
Missiles of every kind
Has now the world become insane?
Has man now lost his mind?

Why else should brothers seek to fight?
Why else must wars be fought?
Surely sanity’s taken flight
Ending intelligent thought

Is no place left for brotherly love?
Must hate direct our course?
Will kings not look for help above?
Has fear become our source?

The bible tells us all so clear
Rumours of war must be
But must God’s children die with fear?
Before our eyes can see!

Before we break this world apart
Its time to take account
Lets speak the truth and search our heart
Lets drink of wisdom’s fount

Let’s hear what Jesus has to say
Lets see what God has planned
Lets seek through love salvation’s way
Lets seek to save our land

Lets seek to save the world itself
Lets seek God’s face anew
Lets take the bible off the shelf
And see what Christ can do

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
