Jesus! True Life's Shield - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Danger rages everywhere
Hazards are common place
Demonic threats beyond compare
Naive countless embrace

Where one comes from, where one may go
May choose on earth to stay
Devils wandering to and fro
Devious! will come our way

With slings and arrows, eyes concealed
Intentions hidden well
Innocence on life's battle field
Too often end in hell

Thanks be to God for Jesus Christ
Lord of my life today
Whom my God and Father sacrificed
My shame to take away

Yours too! if life's your desire
From death you wish to flee
Escape hell's eternal fire
With Heaven's royal decree

Walk following! life's Saviour
Let Christ, take the lead
Change your ways your behaviour
Let God's Son be your shield

Walk beside Him, take His hand
Invite Him rule inside
Allowing Him teach, to understand
On Heaven's Wind to ride

At first it may sound strange to you
A mystery awry
Trust in The Lord, live walking true
Follow Life's King on high.....
