Through Love We Rise - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

The things we feel the things we see
The truth Christ had to tell
Continues yet to set us free
From traps that lead to hell

Through love we melt a heart of stone
Through love we break death’s mould
Through love our faith in Christ alone
We’ll walk the streets of gold

Through selfless love our Father’s face!
We’ll see one day on high
Through Jesus’ love and boundless grace
We’ll have what none can buy

Through love’s obedience, crowned with life
As sons of God we’ll rise
Enrobed with ring as Jesus’ wife
We’ll see through perfect eyes

We’ll see what man has never seen
We’ll hear what no one’s heard
Reigning proclaimed as Jesus’ queen
Through God’s almighty word

From works alone this cannot be
Attending church won’t do
Obedience love is Heaven’s key
The door to life anew

Through love that makes the sun look pale
We learn to understand
That through Christ’s love we cannot fail
To reach The Promised Land

We hear, we see we know its love
Through love we find the way
And in its strength to Christ above
We’ll rise one glorious day
