As Decadence Peaks - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Disbelieving The Truth on high
Living by man made rules
Most people walk and live a lie
And die the death of fools

Decadence scales a brand new peak
The world is so defiled
While God’s passé, no longer chic
Religion’s running wild

So who’ll accept The Gospel now?
Who will believe The News?
Who’ll come to Christ, who’s knee will bow?
And change their wayward views

The world rejects The Living Christ
The blood for us He poured
They doubt God’s Lamb was sacrificed
Refusing Him as Lord

I too was fooled and lived as these
Unmindful of The Light
Living to self, lusting to please
And thinking I was right

Until the day The Truth was found
Until The Way was free
Until I climbed to higher ground
The Facts of Life to see

I see The Tree! God’s Living Vine
His awesome gift received
The useful talent that is mine
To help those yet deceived

We all can show our gratitude
Though God we can’t repay
Yet through a lowly attitude
Others may find The Way
