Love Removes The Stone - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Since first I felt Salvation’s flow
The force of love divine
My soul’s become as virgin snow
And grace is truly mine

This beating heart is mine no more
To love it’s bent the knee
Locking to fear and doubt the door
Throwing away the key

God’s Breath in life removes the stone
Obstructing grace and love
Hindering mortal flesh and bone
Changing for life above

Love is the Gate and Heaven’s way
Its truth on earth displayed
Its righteousness that lights the day
No darkness can invade

True humility fully grown
Through tenderness and care
Bearing God fruit from seed He’s sown
When selflessly we share

The root and trunk of Heaven’s Tree
The Father’s perfect will
The eye through which we learn to see
The truth of Calvary Hill

We see our Saviour, God and friend
Our fortress rock and shield
Yet still we fail to comprehend
The force that’s been revealed

And so it’s been since man’s first dawn
When sin began to reign
Yet grace through love will be reborn
As hearts repent again
