Crying In The Rain - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

“My God I come in deep distress
Disturbed I kneel in pain
To You in prayer I now confess
Whilst crying in the rain


I cry such loud and bitter tears
In life I’m so alone
In Christ I served You many years
But now I’m on my own


Through sin, my shame is hard to bear
I know You’ve seen it all
But at the time I failed to care
So now I’m bound to fall


I vowed to walk Your righteous way
Yet sinned so many times
So now because I chose to stray
I’ll answer for my crimes


I’ve no excuse my God to give
I’m guilty through and through
Yet still I pray You’ll let me live
I promise to be true


I know I’ve said it all before
It seems as though I’ve lied
I’m so afraid You’ve closed Your door
And left me die outside


From grace, my God I fear to leave
From Christ, I’m sad to go
Afraid forever now to grieve
For still I love You so


Eternity; without Your Son
My life was lived in vain
I so regret the sin I’ve done
Whilst crying in the rain.
