Life By Grace - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Like all I’ve bowed my knee to shame
Straying from Truth and Light
Till Heaven chose to call my name
And Christ restored my sight

By grace I heard my Master’s voice
By grace I’m in The Vine
I’ve made God’s Way my only choice
And Jesus’ love is mine

What a privilege God’s bestowed
To sinners such as me
Taking away my heavy load
Through Jesus on The Tree

Blessing by grace of Truth’s caress
Sweeter than aged wine
Now all my sins I may confess
Through Jesus’ blood divine

Only through grace we can believe
By grace blind eyes can see
Only through grace we can receive
The Truth to set us free

Yet few can see The Truth that’s real
Facts the devil would hide
Conceit can rob can cheat and steal
Knowledge can fill with pride

So most of us are deaf and blind
Living; yet walking dead
Through shadows clouding up the mind
And by the devil led

But who’s prepared of self to die?
By grace to suffer pain
Serving until The Lord on high
Will raise our head again
