Endure

Poem By Michael P. Johnson

! !
With backs against our foolish times
Our ways of life once tread
We face the future void of crimes
To all that lies ahead

Without grief consuming our days
The pain we suffer here
The wars the fights demonic frays
Which suddenly appear

Nothing we see can satisfy
Life’s torments never cease
What we steal, borrow or buy
See sorrows just increase

Whatever we think, say or do
Regardless where we live
We somehow end with something new
The devil sought to give

Is it not plain is it so odd?
A mystery, still unsolved?
That through such things we turn to God
For Christ to be involved

According to our history
The shameful way we’ve gone
Is it a confound mystery?
Why now we seek God’s Son?

The Bible’s here for us to read
Revealing life before
By example! will The Lord us lead
To peace forever more

How great it is by faith to know
Our prospects are secure
Where feeling, seeing Heaven flow
With love that will endure

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

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

Pride

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