Treasure Island

Michael P. Johnson

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


Delusion says that life is well
Once dead there’s nothing more
So fools assume there is no hell
And seek the devil’s door

Each one that Satan has enticed
Could lose the chance to live
Yet who accept the living Christ
The Lord will still forgive

For only Christ and Christ alone
Can take away the shame
Can melt the heart now made of stone
And save us from the flame

For Jesus’ blood has set us free
To God we’re perfect jewels
His smiling face we’re bound to see
Whilst hell remains for fools

For souls in hell there’s no appeal
Atonement’s far too late
Do not be fooled the devil’s real
And wants to share his fate

The bible’s true God cannot lie
Though some may live in doubt
One day they’ll know the reason why
They sit in hell and shout

Though Satan’s crop grows daily rife
The duped can see no flaw
Eternity’s a fact of life
Where death is but the door

When Jesus knocks to come inside
When Satan’s at your gate
Beware to whom you open wide
For you decide your fate.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
