I'm Free! Thank God I'm Free!

I'm FREE! Thank God I'm free!

The devil's chains, once had me bound

Within my self-made jail

Until the day God's Truth, I found

That Jesus; paid my bail

 

This slave was free! No-more alone

Though still, I failed to see

The One who bought me as His own

Wherever could He be?

 

I know my Saviour lives within

I know because I feel

I've peace, love, joy,  I'm cleansed of sin

And have Salvation's Seal

 

You're free; my child, go on your way

I heard my Master's voice

You're free to work, to sin and play

You're free, to make your choice

 

I loved the sound, that I was free

To choose what I could do

I turned to Him I couldn't see

And said I'll stay with You

 

Christ took from me, my heavy load

He gave to drink Life's Wine

I felt my heart would soon explode

God's Spirit now was mine

 

Almighty God; had come to me!

Such warmth I feel within

Now all I've heard, I must agree

It's foolishness to sin

 

From Christ; this child will never leave

The world has nought for me

No more can Satan's lies deceive

I'm free! Thank God, I'm free.....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.
