Leeches Beware - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Before to gold we bend our knee
Before we lose our soul
Consider God, the wealth we see
If life’s to be our goal

The Day of Judgment’s close at hand
When reasons will unfold
When some who’ve sought The Promised Land
May otherwise be told

Beware who’ll teach The Father’s sheep
Who’ll preach to God’s reborn
That through your greed in hell you’ll leap
Beyond The Youngest dawn

Beware who thirst for worldly fame
Who’s hunger longs for gold
Who’s walk is down the path of shame
Abusing Jesus’ fold

We ought The Lord our God to fear
His every child to love
Encouraging the church down here
Paving The Way above

Best now The Truth to read again
Through guidance, love and grace
Repent and flee eternal pain
Before we see God’s face

God’s neither blind nor someone’s fool
He sees who’ll cheat and lie
He knows who serve as Jesus’ tool
For wages due on high

For nothing more and nothing less
Abiding by the few
The Truth for Christ we should confess
Standing our calling true
