 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


You were once far away,
But now through Jesus Christ;
No longer do you stray,
No longer be enticed.
For you have been brought near,
Because the blood of Christ;
Has shown you to revere,
To the one sacrificed.
So He is our peace,
In His body He made;
All hostilities cease,
No longer be afraid.
He ended the commands,
As to what Moses taught;
Alleviating demands,
That all the laws had sought.
So Gentile and Jew,
As one humanity;
And any sins for you,
Not as a vanity.
He brought them back to God,
One body by His cross;
All things that are flawed,
Are taken for a loss.
No longer foreigners,
Rather as citizens;
Being parishioners,
And as daughters and sons.
For you are now members,
The family of God;
No longer remembers,
What or how you were flawed.
Christ is the cornerstone,
Of your new foundation;
To whom sits on His throne,
Gave you your salvation.
