Lord Teach Me To See.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 2 times

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


Teach me, Lord God, to know You more

Through each mistake to learn

Teach me to walk forever sure

Deceiving ways to discern

 

Open my eyes, Lord, quicken my mind

My ears facts to hear

Regardless where life’s roads may wind

Your Way my God make clear

 

In Yours! Lord King, I’ve placed my hand

My heart and soul are too

Help me rise to Your Promised Land

Amidst Salvation’s few

 

To You Lord Christ, I’ve bent my knee

Our Father’s hears my prayer

I know how truly You love me

You know, how much I care

 

Why is it hard sometimes to see?

Hells paths that lie before?

Your righteous Way to victory

Straight to my Father’s Door

 

The church alone is not enough

True members come and go

What is to do when times are rough

Who but Yourself can know

 

Teach more children, let wisdom flow

Let knowledge now increase

Let others see, Life’s Truths to know

Cause foolishness to cease

 

Here am I Lord shedding tears

Full of Life’s joy inside

Before this foul world disappears

Allow me, join Your Bride…..

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.
