We Must Go on
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson

†††††† We must go on

Godís work on earth is almost done

His song we choose to sing

We need His strength to carry on

And serve The coming King

For one to grow within the Vine

We need The Christ as Lord

We need to know Heís yours and mine

To flee Godís vengeful sword

How can we serve, yet count the cost?

How can we fail to give?

Saviour died to save the lost

That we in Him should live

Surely His death was not in vain

The price was far too high

Letís pray our love, would ease the pain

Through which He had to die

We need to learn of Jesus more

We need Him as lifeís guide

To see Godís Lamb as Heavenís Door

Salvationís Way inside

Christ knows each thought, the dreams we seek

He knows oneís heart and soul

He sees each need before we speak

And through His love made whole

Weíve read His book, we know His might

Weíve heard Salvationís voice

Weíve drank His blood, beheld the light

Weíve made in Christ our choice

So carry on whatever comes

Sitting at Jesusí feet

On earth rather to eat His crumbs

Than Satanís choicest meet.....

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.
