 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


God is our refuge and strength,

Our aid in times of trouble;

To persevere at any length,

Pulling us out from the rubble.


For this is why we do not fear,

Therefore, we will not be afraid;

Knowing since that the Lord is near,

No need to be shocked or dismayed.


Though when feeling the earth tremble,

As mountains fall into the sea;

The waters roar from the tumble,

Waves tossing and crash to be free.


The surging sea as mountains quake,

A river will stream with delight;

Smashing against the rocks and break,

For producing an awesome sight.


The joy of the holy dwelling place,

The city where God lives within;

Having such compassion and grace,

Blocking any access of sin.


The city of God will not move,

Even from a severe shudder;

For the Lord causes to improve,

Since the Lord controls the rudder.


Nations outraged in an uproar,

While kingdoms are overthrown;

The earth melts as God will deplore,

What man does He does not condone.


The Lord of Hosts our stronghold,

Commands armies on our side;

Our protector who is bold,

Shields all of those who will abide.


Witness the exploits of the Lord,

Who brings destruction to the earth;

Never letting it be ignored,

Of creation and its true worth.


Stop your fighting and know your God,

Stop your striving and recognize;

Worshipping to honor and laud,

Stop your cheating and all the lies.
