Christian Poetry-By Greg Millhorn

SALT OF THE EARTH

 

The brilliance of God’s glory

Is there for all to see

The radiance of Lord Jesus

Reflects upon you and me

 

Brighter than any star

In the darkest night

The people of the Lord

Shine forth with His light

 

We are His body

With legs, arms and hands

Always wanting to help others

Just as the Lord commands

 

Loving God with all our hearts

And our neighbors too

Jesus is living in us

And there’s nothing we can’t do

 

The salt of the earth

With distinctive taste and savor

Are people doing God’s will

And never losing their flavor

 

 

A WISE MAN KNOWS BETTER

 

A wise man knows better

Than to seek changes he cannot control

But a foolish man runs blindly

To offer the world his eternal soul

 

God made man is His image

And gave him freedom of his will

Man worships creation and not the creator

And he is worse for it still

 

The Father gave us His Son

Accepting Him takes away our sin

This does not mean we sin no more

We try not to, because He abides within

 

If you look at how the wicked prosper

Things in this world are easy for them to do

They will gain the world, but miss the savior

God’s word on this is very true

 

God’s word never returns to Him void

It is always accepted by at least one

But there are many that reject it

And it’s been that way since man begun

 

 

MY BROTHER’S KEEPER

 

Am I my brother’s keeper, Lord?

You told me I should be

Why do I hurt my Brother

Then run and pray to thee

 

Do I hold his sin up

So all can see it, under his face

Or do I tell him about mine

Together praying in a silent place

 

The wicked can’t wait to see

The good fall by the way

Christians are under watchful eyes

We must renew faith everyday

 

I stand upon the word of God

And know it to be true

When you point your fingers at someone

There’s three pointing back at you

 

Jesus said, “Love God”

And your neighbor as yourself

Don’t be so quick to judge

Put condemnation on a shelf

 

 

THE BOSS

 

I’m working for the Lord

In everything that I do

Giving my all for Him

And likewise so should you

 

Jesus is my Boss

At church or working place

People wonder what’s happening

Always a smile upon my face

 

With this way of thinking

And trying to do no wrong

Just doing our very best

Because to Him we all belong

 

Do not be caught sleeping

Thinking the Boss will delay

Because He will come quickly

On that very day

 

Blessed are the servants

The Lord they have sought

For the Son of Man will come

At an hour you think not

 

 

THE LORD WAS THERE

 

The Reverend led the prayers

On that joyful day

Even when it was over

Everybody just wanted to stay

 

The church received a blessing

And the building containing it too

Many things were done that day

Before the service was through

 

Straight from God’s word

Rang out the truth

Intense ears were listening

From the aged to the youth

 

The preaching and praising

To God’s Holy Son

Just got better and better

And it was really fun

 

The countenance of God’s people

Seemed to take on a glow

Everyone was so very happy

The Lord was there I know

 

 

THE POOL OF SALVATION

 

Sitting on the porch

On a warm summer day

I heard a terrible scream

From not every far away

 

Like a shot from a cannon

To the pool straight and true

I pulled a little boy out

He was lifeless and blue

 

I prayed to almighty God

Which I had never done

Then promised, if He saved him

I’d give anything under the sun

 

Suddenly, the boy turned pink

And his life was back again

His parents thanking God for me

It seemed very strange back then

 

Thinking back to those days

Is a happy memory

I saved that little boy

And Almighty God saved me

 

 

BLACK HEART

 

How much longer, O Man

Can your wickedness last

You are more sinful now

Than you were in the past

 

Shedding the innocent’s blood

In your genocide plan

Your knowledge is corrupt

For the family of Man

 

Your priorities are foolish

Saving animals and trees

But when humanity cries out

You are ignoring their pleas

 

You worship God’s creation

But the Lord you forget

The devil has snared you

You’re caught in his net

 

You’re inexcusable O Man

With your black heart

When you stand before God

He will make you depart

 

 

THE HOUR IS NEAR

 

Someday real soon

We shall see

The Lord coming back

For you and me

 

Two men farming

One is taken away

Many people leaving

On this special day

 

Two women weaving

One suddenly gone

Under the Lord’s protection

Are we from now on

 

But just His church

Will get to go

The Body of Christ

I hope you know

 

Only God knows

When the time is here

So always stand ready

The hour is near

 

 

A WISE MAN’S WISDOM

 

Glory not in lies

Or wicked delusion

Where there’s envy or strife

There’s also confusion

 

A wise man’s wisdom

Is fear of the Lord

He’s full of Righteousness

By God he’s restored

 

Submit yourselves to God

Humbly in His sight

He will lift you up

As His shining light

 

Be patient with others

As they are with you

If you judge people falsely

You condemn yourself too

 

A double minded man

Has a devilish heart

He’s unstable in his ways

And from God’s he’ll depart

 

 

EVERYTHING IS THE LORD’S

 

By every word of God

Is how man should live

Everything is the Lord’s

To hold or to give

 

Your Father in Heaven

Knows your every need

He sees a giving heart

Or one full of greed

 

All things are possible

To him that believe

Have faith in the Lord

And blessings you will receive

 

His yoke is easy

And His burdens are light

Trusting in the Lord

By faith, not by sight

 

God sent His Son

Into this world to save

You better learn this fact

Before you reach the grave
