Treasure Island

Michael P. Johnson

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

WE NEED BUT ASK


Its sad to see our neighbours fall
To see our families fail
Its sad that they reject God’s call
And spend their lives in jail

This age of car and aeroplane
Of spaceships to the moon
Man’s wanton lust and selfish gain
Though Christ is coming soon

They’ve been to school they’ve grown so wise
But still The Truth they doubt
Their selfish pride has closed their eyes
To what this life’s about

They fail to see the facts at hand
The devil’s robbed their sight
Whilst heads are stuck in shifting sand
They fail to see The Light

No thought of death and coming wrath
No thought of Heaven’s will
Choosing instead the devil’s path
They hope life’s hopes to fill

Whilst Satan yet controls their mind
Whilst evil fills their heart
They’ll wander lost and total blind
And have from life no part

God’s Son alone can save their soul
God’s Son alone can heal
God’s Son alone can make them whole
If when to Him they kneel

It matters not how deep we’ve trod
How shameful yet we live
We need but seek The Son of God
And ask Him to forgive

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
