A Christian Perspective (And Prayer) of the World in Strange Times...

Where Do You Stand?



Until the Last Song is Written

Until the last song is written… Be it Good…or Be it Bad,

Please don’t pull us from this Earth, My heavenly “Dad”!

Father…we are the only chance for prayer left…that they ever had.

I know I am just merely a small life form,

I know I should pray for Jesus to return.

But, I pray for those who just don’t know you or are on the verge,

Lord…A few more extra years before you come…is all I urge!



When you come…that’s when this time you created will end,

It will be the end for those who refused to know you as a Redeemer, and Friend.

Even now…when they may read this poem, it may be in disgust,

They only believe in what their own friends say; That’s who they trust.

Jesus…there are good ones still on the planet who contribute!

Believe you me…I’m not standing here trying to boast or dispute,

Look at me…as though I am someone that is worthy enough to remind you…

I am just pleading for the ones that don’t know that this time is almost through.



Before the one who gets up to day to go to work…as his family each goes their way,

Before he pulls out some extra bills from his wallet to help a homeless one with pay,

Before anyone reaches out in concern for anyone else today.

Before they balk at what the “television-evangelist” has to say,

Before someone else gets caught up in the world, and all its’ treasure,

Before any one of us “sell-out” our very soul for a few minutes of pleasure.

Before one more person seeks out to do evil, or by it is smitten,

Please hold back your coming…until the last song is written !



Oh Lord…you have told us to pray for the day that you will come...

Sometimes...I look and see around me that the End has Finally Begun.

And there are so many souls left on this planet (I know you know!) to be won !

I know it will be a hard day for you when the Father says, “It is Finally Done”!

To arrive upon your White Horse, and stand on the Mount of Olives once again,

To cast your enemy away, and become the “Victorious One” at Armageddon.

Because…when that judgment time for you…does come…on the day that you arrive,

The rest of the good seeds will forever remain on the “rocky” road side.

Until the last song is written…Be it Good…or Be it Bad,

Please give the good seeds many more opportunities…like all the ones that I had ! (*)


(*)Note: Hope to see you on the other side!

Howdy MPM - My personal plan is to hang around here some... but, if I "gotta go," then maybe it would be OK to hitch a ride with nice folks like you.

Gus :-)))

Lady Tenaz: Hello friend...Thank you very much for stopping by this one! Yes...It is a plea for them that struggle to know God...who are good people....giving people...people that contribute to society...and even capable to bring us the best of things we have in life...like good songs. The people who for one reason or another just still need a chance to understand the loving, saving grace of our Savior. Everything you said in your comment was spot on. My heart yearns to see all on the other side. Some could look at this poem and think it ridiculous. I wish I could find more words to explain the simple and openness for everyone to be recieved by him. It is not about rules...but a balance in life...set forth in the Bible...that extends a hand out for a relationship. It is that simple! Always appreciate your comments. Thank you for all you mentioned above...God Bless....and Humble Regards, MPM

I enjoyed this alot. It is funny how if you ask most people what the meaning of the "our father" prayer is they can't tell you. Its obvious you know what it means. What a beautiful and earnest plea for mercy on those who are not close to GOD, begging to give such ones a chance. As Matthew 24:14 states "Let this good news be preached TO ALL THE INHABITED EARTH and then the end will come". We have to have the faith that GOD will keep his word and give ALL a chance to know him before he acts out his Judgement through Jesus. As the Bible also states that GOD cannot tell a lie. Good poem my friend.
