Without You.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

What can one do without You Lord?

When Heaven’s on one’s mind

How ignorant can life afford

Foolishly walking blind


No one has ever seen Your Face

None but Your Son and Heir

No one without Salvation’s grace

Eternal Life can share


Invisible, though You are my King

Yet always You are near

Since Adam’s day, Your praise we sing

Knowing each song You hear


Life! As we know it is a test

With many ups and downs

Seekers alone on Heaven’s quest

Can hope to win Life’s crowns


So why are most people failing?

Why are church members rare?

Whilst billions on earth are ailing

No one yet seems to care


We need You, Lord, so much for sure

Although the world’s astray

Without Your Son, there is no Cure

There is no hope nor Way


Churches stand empty more and more

Shame grows higher than yea

What can be done without Life’s Door?

Without Jesus today?


Without Lord God, without Your Son

Your Spirit’s guiding hand

No single soul can ever be won

To dwell Love’s Promised Land…..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
