Think Not Of Wealth - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Think not of wealth, nor tomorrow
Or what we wear or eat
But think of Him knowing sorrow
And of the time we meet

Think of Heaven and think of hell
Of life and death’s long night
Of that which Jesus had to tell
Shedding salvation’s Light

Consider Christ and who He is
Consider why He came
Consider all and each of His
Walking the path of shame

Give thought of mother, father, kin
Neighbours and friends close by
Think of the state of grace they’re in
And of the day they die

Soon every knee to Christ must bow
Where each their sin confess
So let’s prepare to meet Him now
And all our ways address

Let all examine self today
Consider all we’ve done
Seek God’s forgiveness as we pray
Through Jesus Christ His Son

We need God’s Lamb as Lord and King
As Counsellor and friend
Trusting in Him for everything
Until the very end

Until our Saviour comes again
Upon His horse of white
Freeing His bride of death and pain
By power of His might
