Praise In Motion 1-2-3

 

With grace! O God You lavish peace

Redeeming souls with love

Promising life will never cease

Through Christ Your Lamb above

 

From children Lord, You’d harvest praise

Through righteous word and deed

Learning to walk Your chosen ways

Planting love’s faithful seed

 

Its not through cliché’s chic and smart

Nor songs or phrases sweet

But proceeds from a loving heart

Salvation’s made complete

 

You save; You heal, cleanse souls of shame

You raise the walking dead

You fill one’s heart with Holy Flame

And furnish daily bread

 

You meet their needs provide their food

Your very self You share

Should not we show our gratitude?

Reveal we truly care

 

How oft we say. “We love You Lord”

This side of Heaven’s door

Whilst in our hands with gun and sword

We wage each bloody war

 

True praise is in life’s song to sing

Dancing in love’s embrace

Through offerings we daily bring

Through Jesus’ saving grace

 

Through selfless love through noble thought

In spirit truth and light

We’ll praise You through each battle fought

Sure the future’s bright …..

 

 

Lift high The Christ, The Lamb once dead

Reveal God’s living Word

Serving The Wine serving life’s Bread

Till all the world has heard

 

Glorify The Lord in deed

Lift Jesus’ name on high

Sow Heaven’s love plant living Seed

Give free what none can buy

 

Honour The Lord with made up mind

With heart and soul show love

So others through your deeds may find

The Door to life above

 

Prove to neighbours we truly care

Through actions God reveal

Divulge to strangers everywhere

The Father’s love is real

 

Let Jesus’ handwork lives display

Let’s dance love’s dance and sing

Reveal God’s grace to those astray

Glorify our King

 

Love Jesus through the fruit we bear

Presenting bodies true

Sharing with grace our finest fair

In all we say and do

 

Be unto Christ a faithful bride

To God a sheer delight

Let Heaven’s Seed be multiplied

Till all our fields are white

 

Let’s praise as David long ago

Obey God’s royal command

Let’s rise let’s shine let actions flow

So the world may understand……

 

 

 

 

Let actions Heaven’s path reveal

Jesus be seen through love

Let fruit grow rich through righteous zeal

Whilst on The Way above

 

When true compassion healings bring

When love begins to soar

The lost may hear the songs we sing

And dance to Heaven’s Door

 

Lend hand to harvest golden wheat

Lighten a neighbour’s load

Standing, serving as God’s elite

Along life’s dusty road

 

Lift Jesus high in all our ways

Let nothing cloud one’s view

Let no one render empty praise

With songs no less than true

 

When feet follow God’s guiding Light

When hands release love’s flow

Souls will receive a robe of white

And humble hearts will glow

 

Will love not reach The Saviour’s throne

Touch Jesus tender heart

Will God not melt the hardest stone?

And rip death’s chains to part

 

Such is the praise we need to give

Showing how much we care

For He who died that we may live

The Father’s will to share

 

Let Jesus have His Way within

Let faith through deeds be heard

So love can live let life begin

According to God’s Word……Michael P. Johnson

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.
