Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


I'll Build My Church

Iíll build my house from those I call


A church of living stone

Not one I choose will ever fall

Nor live or serve alone

All powerís mine to freely give

That none should ever boast

Your daily bread your needs to live

Come through The Holy Ghost

You faithful few are in my sight

Each name is in my hand

Obey my child, do all thatís right

So in my Son youíll stand

Now die to self, live unto me

Leave sin and shame behind

Iíve so much more for you to see

To which your eyes are blind

Iíll teach you all you need to know

Iíll take your foolish doubt

In me; youíll beat the strongest foe

And cast all enemies out

Near and far youíll stand and fight

But you, no one can kill

For you Christís bride are sealed in Light

Reserved for Zion hill

Receive with love my precious Dew

Receive my second birth

Faithful youíll rise my chosen few

From all thatís lived on earth

Remain in Christ and never die

Your tent may fall some day

But rising stones standing on high

Will never; see decay.....† IíLL BUILD MY CHURCH

Iíll build my house from those I call

A church of living stone

Not one I choose will ever fall

Nor live or serve alone

All powerís mine to freely give

That none should ever boast

Your daily bread your needs to live

Come through The Holy Ghost

You faithful few are in my sight

Each name is in my hand

Obey my child, do all thatís right

So in my Son youíll stand

Now die to self, live unto me

Leave sin and shame behind

Iíve so much more for you to see

To which your eyes are blind

Iíll teach you all you need to know

Iíll take your foolish doubt

In me; youíll beat the strongest foe

And cast all enemies out

Near and far youíll stand and fight

But you, no one can kill

For you Christís bride are sealed in Light

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.
