Treasure Island

Michael P. Johnson

(7th Nov.1943 / New Silksworth / Sunderland Co/Durham England)


“When will these battles cease o Lord
When will our troubles end?
When will our neighbours dropp their sword?
And learn to be a friend”

When water in the desert flows
When Jacob’s fields bear fruit
God will reveal His Sharon Rose
Life’s Tree and David’s Root

How great will be the victory
When soil replaces sand
When Isaac’s fig and olive tree
Exalt The Promised Land

When arms and hands reach out in love
When distant friends unite
Israel’s praise will rise above
To Him who won the fight

Hosannas rising to and fro
Glory to God our King
The whole wide world will surely know
And join them as they sing

The Lord has returned to Zion
Even the blind can see
Thank God for Judah’s Lion
Who’s set His people free

God’s day has dawned in Israel
The night has come and past
And now to sickness death and hell
He’s closed the gates at last

The Promised One is here to stay
Within His Promised Land
And Israel; will walk His way
Together hand in hand

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
