Were You There.....

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


Have you ever been to Faithful?

To Truth His only Son

Did you by-pass all that’s evil

Since time was first begun

 

Did you look at True Perfection?

Did you see His smiling face?

Did you wonder your election?

Because of past disgrace

 

Did He tell you not to worry?

Taking you by the hand

Whispering ‘no need to hurry

In time you’ll understand’

 

Did you feel The Glow within you?

Perceive those eyes aflame?

Witness The Wind, and as it blew

He softly called your name     

 

Did you see Supreme Endurance?

Long Suffering and Grace

Who gave with sweet assurance

Salvation’s warm embrace

 

Did He touch your heart touch your soul?

Reveal to you True Love

Promise you Help toward life’s goal

To show The Way above

 

Did you see the holes in hands and feet?

The punctures on His brow

Upon His face a smile so sweet

That brought your knees to bow

 

Did your eyes fill up with tears?

Did your heart feel all aglow?

Did He vanquish all your fears?

Saying “I love you so”…..

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.
