Has Nothing Changed - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Some know His name still live in shame
Blundering through the night
We Know His name and through His Flame
We’re walking in The Light

God gives His Shepherds sheep to keep
To feed along The Way
But like Bo Peep who lost her sheep
Theirs too are found to stray

We say that smoking is a sin
And beer gin and wine
And so we bar a soul within
Who’d otherwise be fine

We sit in church till sleek and fat
We think we fall not short
We sieve a gnat but not a rat
Like those of whom Christ taught

We need to practice what we preach
With service in our mind
Live The Way that we may reach
Those weary lost and blind

We’ve bibles from a by gone age
In language all but gone
Interpreting most every page
To glorify God’s Son

We need the young the old and grey
The youth to multiply
Through foolishness they stay away
Still lost in sin to die

We’ve many things to answer for
Though good intentions reign
We need to love them through the door
Ere Jesus comes again
