Time (1) - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Before time’s dawn and earth God made -Gen.1: 1
Amidst eternal night -Gen.1: 2
When darkness had on earth to fade
When God spoke forth the light -Gen.1: 3

But with the light came time to earth -Gen.1: 5
The same that ages man -Ps.90: 4,10
For God had known before his birth
Man’s sin would spoil the plan -Gen.3: 6

Now crucial is this time to all
Like sand, life seems to flow -Isa.66: 8
Within a trice, nations can fall
Or melt away like snow -Isa.40: 6

God’s image dwells within a frame -Gen.2: 7
In modest forms of clay -Gen.1: 26
Made righteous through His Holy Flame -Mt.3: 12
We’ll see God’s face one day -Rev.22: 4

Alone till then, the flesh grows old -Ps.103: 5
Through sin, grows frail and sick -Deut.24: 16
Yet time, man’s spirit cannot hold -Hos.13: 14
But stays forever quick -Mt.10: 26

For that of God, can never age -Gen.3: 22
Nor ever see decay -Ro.8: 21
To flesh alone, is time a cage -Ro.7: 24
That Christ will free one day

Through Jesus’ hand, the sky will fold -Isa.34: 4
Then time will be no more
The world of this must now be told -Mt.28: 19
Must seek Salvation’s Door -Jn.14: 6

For Christ the Door, will set us free -Ro.6: 3-4
Will keep from sin and shame -Ro.6: 18
Then when this age has ceased to be
We’ll pass the Judgement Flame -1Co.3: 13 PTO.
