It’s Not Our Time To Rest - Poem by Michael P. Johnson
We lie, we steal we cheat and kill
Deceive where ere we can
Fulfilling thus the devil’s will
Against our fellow man
Weren’t we ourselves once lost and blind?
Weren’t we to sin not slaves?
Till love brought change to heart and mind?
And saved us from our graves
By faith we take of bread and wine
Drinking redemption’s blood
Is not salvation yours and mine?
To live the way we should
Are we to see our neighbours fail?
To watch them die in shame
Rising to endless life in jail
In diabolic flame
Should we not live as Christ before?
As salt and worldly light
Leading others to Heaven’s door
Helping them win life’s fight
Forgive the sins our neighbours do
Forget the shame they’ve done
Paving the way to start anew
Ordained by God’s own Son
The King of kings on Heaven’s throne
The Lord of lords on high
Who’d hate to see us throw the stone
That causes one to die
Today is not our time to rest
Content as Jesus’ bride
We need to rise till all are blest
Whom Heaven’s called inside
