Treasure Island

Michael P. Johnson

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

I WANT


I WANT
I want God’s Holy Ghost inside
I want His Fire to burn
I want to join the faithful bride
And from The Master learn

I want my eyes The truth to see
A want God’s Light to shine
Be made in Christ completely free
And see that life is mine

I want true faith to make me strong
Humility to reign
I want to Jesus Christ belong
And really born again

I want God’s love to overflow
So much the world to share
Plant righteous seed where ere I go
And show how much I care

I want to please my God on high
I want to serve Him well
I want to live and never die
And save the lost from hell

I want to sow Salvations seed
I want so much to give
I want to meet my neighbour’s need
I want to see them live

I want to see the devil fall
Sing Jesus’ praise out loud
I want to hear my Saviour call
And join Him in the cloud

I want God’s Son to take my hand
To enter Heaven’s Door
And when I dwell The Promised Land
I want to want no more

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
