I Too Was Blind - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Through sin; I failed to understand
The wonders God can do
But now through grace in Jesus’ hand
I’m saved and born anew

When life’s too bad, for great and small
When empty is inside
We’ve failed to answer Jesus’ call
We doubt for us! He died

We still believe the devil’s lies
Yet blind to God’s decree
But Jesus’ Light; inside would rise
When visiting “The Tree”

Yet darkness fills the wicked mind
Makes hard the heart of man
Just like a fool, I too was blind
To Satan’s evil plan

I failed to care what death would bring
Deceived! I lived in shame
The devil’s song, I loved to sing
Until my Jesus came

God’s love and peace is truly mine
His blood; has set me free
My cup He fills with Jesus’ wine
And makes these eyes to see

I see “The Truth” the Father’s will
The promised “Holy Flame”
I see the devil’s out to kill
Who think this life’s a game

Who think! to know their right from wrong
Who think; God’s Son a lie
Who fail to sing Salvation’s song
Still blind; will surely die…
