Because He Loves.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

I love Him, because He loves me

Showing selfless He cares

God saved my soul gave eyes to see

The fruit salvation shares


I love God’s Son with heart and soul

In spirit through and through

For guiding me towards the goal

No flesh and bone can view


Because of Jesus’ sinless blood

Because I have believed

I’ve learned to walk The Way I should

In strength of grace received


Because He heard my sinful cry

Because His mercy’s real

Because He chose for me to die

And place on me His Seal


He sees my thoughts my inner being

The road once sought and trod

But quickly turning when seeing

Jesus is Lord & God


I love Him for The Truth revealed

The facts of life made known

Allowing me my soul to yield

The Lamb on Heaven’s throne


Forgiven, loved, by grace approved

Each day’s an awesome thrill

How can my soul now not be moved?

How can my tongue be still?


I pray to live to come alive

My former life to flee

To walk to grow to always thrive

In He who set me free.....

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.
