Simply Talk - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Darkness pollutes our blinded race
In silence death prevails
Yet Heaven’s Light can find no place
Within our self-made jails

Through ages past in sweet disguise
Devils have planted tares
Till even now before our eyes
We see their evil wares

For still we harbour Pharisees
Still Sadducees galore
Burdening children to their knees
Through selfish manmade law

We speak religious words of old
Hallelujah’s loud and clear
We’ll dance and sing in any fold
And flood our hearts with cheer

But is it God we aim to please?
Is Heaven’s will in mind?
Is it to Christ we bend our knees
Or idols self made blind

Let’s speak in modern language now
When Jesus Christ’s believed
Let’s simply preach and teach just how
Salvation is received

Let’s tell The simple Gospel all
As taught through Christ above
Lift simply those who simply fall
And lead them back to Love

Let’s simply see “The Church” today
Look simply to her soul
How deep she’s sunk and gone astray
From Heaven’s righteous goal
