 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Please protect me O God,
I take refuge in you;
Who I honor and laud,
Being faithful and true.
 
Because You are my Lord,
I lack and am no good;
Finding I am ignored,
And not do as I should.
 
Those who lead holy lives,
Are noble who fill me;
With joy till Christ arrives,
Then as glad as can be.
 
Those who quickly chase.
Other gods and idols;
Will never find the grace,
Because their faith idles.
 
All of their tomorrows,
Of sacrificial offerings;
Will multiply their sorrows,
From nothing that it brings.
 
As my inheritance,
He determines my destiny;
And gives me confidence,
For soothing agony.
 
I find pleasant places,
Beautiful to behold;
Because the Lord graces,
Faith and love that is bold.
 
God makes the path of life,
With the fullness of joy;
Although filled with the strife,
To strengthen not destroy.
