Awaiting Heaven’s Call - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

So arrogant and proud am I?
Frustrated is my soul
How can I live how can I die?
And reach my righteous goal?

How can I lose this foolish pride?
From arrogance be free
Be rid of darkness deep inside
That Light may shine in me

O Lord my God receive my prayer
Lend ear my humble plea
Consume this evil I declare
This wickedness You see

Remove from me this mask of lies
This filth within my heart
My selfish ways You so despise
Command them to depart

Allow me drink of Heaven’s flow
Partake eternal Dew
Baptise me in Your cleansing glow
Till love comes smiling through

Let love remove the devil’s crown
Let faith my soul ignite
Till walls of darkness crumble down
And perish from Your sight

There’s nothing Lord You fail to see
Nothing from You can hide
In Jesus’ name please set me free
And turn life’s wayward tide

Renouncing all my sins before
However great or small
To Satan’s knock I’ve locked my door
Awaiting Heaven’s call
