Jesus Has a Robe
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


Jesus Has a Robe

Salvation has a robe for me

A robe of radiant light

The bible says itís all for free

God wrote it black on white

God has a robe for you there too

Itís written here the same

Thereís nothing more for you to do

But trust in Jesusí name

Iíve read it all, the bookís quite clear

Itís plain for all to see

If we but call; it says right here

God comes to you and me

I called to God beside my bed

I said if You are true

Confirm in me, the things Iíve read

Come save and make me new

I heard the voice from God above

I heard Him clearly say

ďIíve come to you with all my love

Iíve come my child to stayĒ

In truth I heard the living God

I heard! I tell no lie

I heard, though some may think it odd

I know Iíll never die

We have in Christ, a robe to wear

I know the bibleís true

God has much more He wants to share

With me my friend and you

So why not try like me right now

Iíve told you what to say

No need to kneel or even bow

Heíll hear you if you pray.....

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.
