Why Are You Crying? - Poem by Michael P. Johnson
Why miserable, child of God?
What causes you to cry?
While countess here, more abroad
In sin and shame die
Is it for these, you shed those tears?
Does sorrow flood your mind?
Do you feel the loss, feel the fears
Of people lost and blind
The young, the old taught to believe
In god’s more dead than stone
Failing knowledge, blindly they’ll cleave
To mortal flesh and bone
Is this, causing you’re crying still?
Such weeping in excess
You’re praying Christ, with grace to fill
Sufferers in distress
If this is so, if this is true
If this, my friend’s your plight
Pray fervent, others share your view
And help to shed life’s light
You see the world, is so deceived
Till right is seen as wrong
Most dance to tunes they’ve received
Singing the devil’s song
My friend, dear friend, I see it too
Born through eternal grace
Through faith let’s hope, more than our few
Will see our Father’s face
Will seek, find Salvation power
As you and I my friend
Even till the final hour
Their knees to Christ will bend…..
