Standard Waving
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

� � � � Standard Waving

Light is the yoke light is the plough

Sweet is The Morning Dew

One of millions standing tall now

One of Truth�s chosen few

Who�d imagine my salvation?

To this world dead and gone

Such sweet love this blessed sensation

Praise The Lord God�s only Son

Juices flowing, heart a pounding

Oh my God how great this thrill

Deep inside the trumpet�s sounding

Heralding Your perfect will

Now plucked from fire, Heaven bound

Washed in blood, made Light

Though countless foes maraud around

Equipped am I to fight

What an honour serving Jesus

How much glory Christ I�ll bring?

Though the devil tries to seize us

Victory�s song I�ll surely sing

Storms withstanding mountains scaling

Rivers wading oceans deep

Standard flying faith unfailing

Bless the harvest soon we�ll reap

What was life before You came Lord?

Aching dread festooned on clay

With helmet, shield with trusted sword

I�ll fight the fight Jesus� way

Unafraid of life�s tomorrows

Unafraid of Satan�s hoard

What care I of petty sorrows

In the army of The Lord.....

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.
