The Search For God - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

“What is this life yet all about?
Is death the end or what?
What makes us love lend trust or doubt?
Is Jesus real or not?

There’s nought in me of any good
Of this I must confess
Come help me live the way I should
If truth I may possess”

In tender hands come hold me tight
If God You hear me pray
Come show this child life’s guiding light
Let darkness fade away

The answer came, when Christ was sought
Through tears, through heartfelt sighs
Now all’s so different than I thought
God’s Truth brought open eyes

“The choice to serve is mine alone
Seeing The Christ above
Lord, take this child of flesh and bone
Baptise me in His love

That I in Truth; may spend my days
Not as I’ve lived before
But now in love, singing Your praise
Learning to know You more

Before Your throne can dwell no shame
No sin, reach Heaven’s shore
Consume me in Your Holy Flame
Give birth to me once more

I give to You, my sinful load
Give me Your hand of grace
Please walk with me life’s narrow road
To see Your smiling face”…
