What Good Was Done For God? - Poem by Denis Martindale

Another month is almost done... what good has been achieved?
What did we do for Christ, God's Son... in whom we first believed?
What prophecies have come to pass? What miracles were seen?
Or did we think that life's a farce, like on each TV screen?
Did good works happen as God planned? Or did we stay at home?
Did we advance to take more land for Jesus or just roam?
Were broken hearts restored at all? Were families improved?
Did lost souls answer to God's call... or did they stay unmoved?

And what of us, the chosen few? Was God's Word stored within?
Did Jesus merely help us through... or guide lost souls to win?
Did we quote Jesus now and then? Or keep thoughts to ourselves?
Like shining lights switched off again... like unread books on shelves?
Was there a chance to give once more? A prompting from the Lord?
Amazing grace, not just the Law? Some promise of reward?
Another month is almost done... what good has been achieved?
What did we do for Christ, God's Son... in whom we first believed?
