Equal To Reign (1)

Poem By Michael P. Johnson

So oft its hard to stand alone
Or walk the path of life
So God from Adam took a bone
And made for him a wife

To help! The Lord gave Adam Eve
Equal, were both to reign
Neither should slight, neither should grieve
Nor cause the other pain

Was this an error made of God?
Was this some foolish dream?
Not few today would think it odd
If man would reign supreme

Both man and wife believe they’re lord
Instead of David’s Root
Seldom pulling in one accord
To bear their marriage fruit

Driving each other left and right
Pushing each other down
Till harmony is out of sight
Till discord wears a crown

Divorce grows rife in every land
Man’s children cry alone
Where neither side will understand
Where hearts have grown as stone

The evidence we all can see
The truth is all too plain
Where selfish pride will bend its knee
True peace can reign again

Let harmony be man’s delight
Let love, guide groom and bride
Let God and man in truth unite
Before the great divide P.T.O.

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
