Now’s The Time - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Mysteries dancing to and from
With shadows of the past
Vague to the mind breath’s final flow
When life’s last die is cast

Before we cross the great divide
And be exposed to light
We need The Lamb who came and died
We need to rise and fight

Its time to query truth and lies
Question our chosen ways
Remove the blindfolds from our eyes
And penetrate the haze

We need to free our lives of weed
Take hold of Jesus’ hand
Allow Him plant His living Seed
Within our barren land

Its time to venture from the deep
Depart from self made graves
By faith to take life’s greatest leap
And walk upon the waves

Its time to hope its time to dare
Believe the facts we’ve heard
Reach out and take what God would share
According to His word

Its time to rise and God obey
Our fellow man to love
Casting aside what fools may say
For wisdom from above

Regardless now what life may bring
Though fierce be the foe
Let’s raise the song Christ gives to sing
When in His name we go
