Though Old & Grey - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

This world’s in such a dreadful state
Her children live and die
Blindly walking through hells wide gate
And never knowing why

At wisdom’s dawn, though old and grey
Though frail before the grave
Pray Jesus come to show The Way
A crying soul’s to save

Pay heed to what The Spirit speaks
Obey each royal command
For safe is he who Jesus seeks
And taken in His hand

The hand that made the world we see
The universe entire
Gives life brings death sets sinners free
Or burn within hell’s fire

Lust not for silver, not for gold
Palace nor precious jewel
Seek rather that which can’t be sold
And live as though a fool

Seek not man’s praise nor lust for fame
Beware of those who do
Many have fallen foul to shame
And end like morning dew

Though friends would flood your mind with doubt
Neighbours would lead astray
Decline in love to turn about
Walking The Narrow Way

Allow no devil detain you
Nor sin keep tightly bound
Let Heaven change your worldly view
And lead to higher ground
