Consider this Wretch
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


� � �Consider this Wretch

Scold me, beat me spare no rod

Consume each evil thing

Restore true fear for You my God

That I may serve my King

Your servant Job I can�t replace

Moses Your friend�s unique

If yet one day I�ll see Your face

I need The Truth to seek

Though Satan wields a mighty sword

Although his wares are sweet

I�ll yield no more to him my Lord

Nor savour more defeat

Silver and gold I�ve come to buy

My heart I lay before

Without Your grace I fear to die

And enter Heaven�s door

With heart and soul I�ll stand my post

I�ll stand though many fall

Through faith through trust and Holy Ghost

I�ll answer Heaven�s call

Consider this child Almighty Lord

You�ve cleansed and made me whole

Put in my mouth Salvation�s sword

With love to heal man�s soul

I know all keys are in Your hand

Still work remains undone

I see that death plagues every land

Yet life can still be won

I�ll stay You true, I�ll never stray

This child won�t let You down

I�ll follow Jesus all the way

To life�s eternal crown�..

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.
