Cry to God
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


         Cry to God

Through faith; hearts see and know The Way

Trusting where countless fail

Standing in Christ while others stray

To find their end in jail


God’s time of grace one day will part

Where judgement soon will reign

Allow God’s love to change your heart

To cleanse of spot and stain


Let living Light anoint you now

See Jesus as The Way

Allow The Truth self’s knee to bow

And humble hearts to pray


Heaven can hear the smallest cry

God knows each child by name

Who live to Christ will never die

Nor feel the sword of shame


At first, it’s seems too hard to do

As Jesus knows too well

God sends His Spirit warm and true

To keep us free from hell


No matter what in life we’ve done

However deep we fall

The Father sends His loving Son

When on His name we call


Let’s cry to God that He may give

His Holy Promise free

Would make fools wise, make dead men live

And cause blind eyes to see.  


Who’ll yet obey Salvation’s rule

Who’ll live as Heaven Planned?

Who’ll give their best and play no fool

Will dwell The Promised Land.....

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.
