Let's Take Stock - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

This world today’s in such a spin
Confusion’s everywhere
People perish so plagued with sin
They fail to even care

Some learn to walk by each mistake
Some learn in truth to thrive
A few find love for Heaven’s sake
Through Jesus Christ alive

He’s God, Lord born King of the Jew
Counsellor, life long Guide
Creator of all yet Doctor too
When dwelling deep inside

Friend of the rich friend of the poor
Lover of all in need
Life’s balm life’s oil, life’s every Cure
And Bread on which to feed

He’s Peace He’s Joy to those who grieve
Water to quench all thirst
But who of us will God believe
And put Christ Jesus first

Now think awhile look deep inside
Take stock of Calvary’s Tree
Let God reveal Christ truly died
For you my friend and me

Who’ll die to sin and live to rise?
Who’ll trust where others fall?
Who’s faith will open wide their eyes?
And find He’s all in all

They’ll seek to learn His perfect will
They’ll love Him and obey
They’ll live and walk with Him until
Beyond the narrow way
