Praise Him Every Day
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


 

           Praise him ever day

“I praise my God with heart and soul

I praise his holy name

I praise the day he made me whole

Taking away my shame

 

I praise him for his peace within

For love each day and night

For Christ who changed my rags of sin

For robes brilliant white

 

I praise him for my highs and lows

My smiles and all my tears

For thorns and for the Sharon Rose

Removing doubts and fears

 

I praise him for life’s gift he gave

His Spirit’s full of love

For knowledge now I’ll see no grave

But live with him above

 

I praise him for the joys of spring

For showing me the way

For life’s eternal songs I sing

And every time I pray

 

I praise him for his living word

Through which true faith is won

That heart and souls are being heard

By Jesus Christ his son

 

I praise him for his grace to save

Whilst dying on the tree

Through all the pain the love he gave

The likes of you and me

 

I praise my God that I may show

The truth my eyes can see

That through these words the world may know

What Jesus means to me”.....

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.
