Create In Me - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Remember not my filthy ways
Consume all trace of shame
Lord set my heart my soul ablaze
In Jesus’ holy name

Stretch forth Your mighty arm o Lord
Redeem me in Your hand
Save me from the coming sword
And all that Satan’s planned

Allow me from Salvation’s womb
Receive undying breath
Let fire each evil thought consume
Release my soul from death

Let strife not rob me of my rest
Let love reign true within
As far as east is from the west
Cast there my wilful sin

My neighbours Lord I all forgive
Trouble I wish to none
I pray by Jesus’ name they’ll live
And Heaven’s will be done

I pray my selfish ways to change
That patience would increase
That love my life would so arrange
To walk the path of peace

Stretch forth Your hand and take up mine
Embrace this child of woe
Caress me with Your lips divine
And make my heart as snow

Purest white tender and warm
Gentle; just like a dove
Then through Your hand within me form
A ministry of love……
