Lend a Hand
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


� � � �Lend a Hand

When life�s foundations come to light

When Heaven�s plans are read

With Christ�s directions plain in sight

We build from stones once dead

We�ll build; though all around is war

Knowing God�s great desire

With Jesus as our perfect door

We raise up walls of fire

Most every house dwell life�s debris

Hell�s demon hoards abound

We need to keep each other free

To walk on holy ground

Each child of God must understand

Amidst life�s vicious fight

When all the members lend a hand

The bride could well unite

Through faith in God and through His Christ

As stones will stand as one

And through the blood God sacrificed

We�ll do what must be done

Then brick on brick and stone on stone

Life�s Door will be in place

Through Jesus Christ and He alone

We�ll see God face to face

With love He�ll smile on souls that toil

On hearts consumed with love

Pouring on each anointing oil

For endless life above

Till every crack and cranny�s filled

Till safe on Heaven�s shore

We need in faith life�s wall to build

Each day a little more.....������ Lend a Hand

When life�s foundations come to light

When Heaven�s plans are read

With Christ�s directions plain in sight

We build from stones once dead

We�ll build; though all around is war

Knowing God�s great desire

With Jesus as our perfect door

We raise up walls of fire

Most every house dwell life�s debris

Hell�s demon hoards abound

We need to keep each other free

To walk on holy ground

Each child of God must understand

Amidst life�s vicious fight

When all the members lend a hand

The bride could well unite

Through faith in God and through His Christ

As stones will stand as one

And through the blood God sacrificed

We�ll do what must be done

Then brick on brick and stone on stone

Life�s Door will be in place

Through Jesus Christ and He alone

We�ll see God face to face

With love He�ll smile on souls that toil

On hearts consumed with love

Pouring on each anointing oil

For endless life above

Till every crack and cranny�s filled

Till safe on Heaven�s shore

We need in faith life�s wall to build

Each day a little more.....

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.
