 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


You are my inheritance Lord,
To whom I am in one accord;
I promise to hold Your Word,
And everything I have heard.
I have thought all about my life,
With all the toils and the strife;
As I look towards You for favor,
All because You are my Savior.
With all my heart I want to win,
So please keep me away from sin;
Be kind to me as you promised,
And my trees will bear the ripest.
I will walk in Your direction,
At death give me resurrection;
And am able to be with You,
Like streams all the blessings run through.
Without any hesitation,
I accept Your invitation;
And rush to obey Your commands,
Knowing just how solid it stands.
Though the ropes of all the evil,
Being controlled by the devil;
Are tied totally around me,
Trying to blindfold not to see.
But I forget not what You taught,
That is why in life I have sought;
Everything pertains to You,
To rest easy as I construe.
At midnight as I lie awake,
I know that you never forsake;
Directing me as I go my way,
Ensuring that I do not stray.
