On Bended Knees


You are my God You’re always there

Your Son Christ died for me

Rising answering this sinner’s prayer

Willing to set souls free


Yes, You are God, Your love is real

As Jesus my King my Lord

Hearing each prayer this child’s appeal

Saving me from the sword


You are my God hearing my plea

Forgiving all my past

Enabling on bended knee

Receive true peace at last


You are my God, removing doubt

Through faith, blind eyes may see

Revealing what life is all about

Why death has yet to be


You are my God cleansing my soul

Purging my shameful heart

Lifting my spirit, making whole

Granting a brand new start


You are my God Salvation’s Dew

Saving lost souls astray

To carry us home to live with you

Forever and a day


You are my God Salvation’s Well

Your Word Life’s Bible’s true

The sting has gone from death and hell

For those who’ll trust in You


You are my God of truth and grace

Father with endless love

Preparing me a resting place

With Jesus, always above ….. 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.
