What Is Prosperity - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

While man's prosperity seeking
Affluence, night and day
Few believe Jesus is speaking
What Heaven, has to say

Live right! Love says, commit no wrong
Be righteous in my sight
Forever more you'll sing Joy's song
With angels left and right

Grace, stands longing your heartfelt cry
Your disadvantaged soul
To help, to guide whole on high
Toward Life's unseen goal

For a moment on earth, what, is wealth?
What's fortune, glamour, fame
While Love, through Grace, Salvation's health
One can live free, of shame

Life, is the name of Christ on earth
Grace, is God's Holy Dove
Salvation delivers souls, new birth
Through Heaven's selfless Love

Through The Risen Christ Jesus' Blood
His suffering, His pain
Man, living, walking, as man should
We can be born-again

What need of silver, finest gold?
Jewels, on head, neck, and hands
Disregarding all Heaven's told
Building, on sinking sands

Christ! is The Way, The Truth, The Life
Life's King of wisdom rules
Live, love, true, through troubles and strife
Let death! greet earth's, richest fools.....
