 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


What more that I could say,

Because time will fail me;

Than the prophets did pray,

Through faith that they would see.


By faith the people crossed,

The Red Sea on dry land;

By faith the lives it cost,

An army by command.


We quenched raging fire,

Escaped the two-edge sword;

Punished for desire,

From the wrath of the Lord.


We gained strength in weakness,

Became mighty in war;

Recovered in bleakness,

On a far distant shore.


For the faith we cherish,

We conquered with such might;

And we did not perish,

Foreigners in a fight.


The dead raised back to life,

But others were tortured;

Having endured the strife,

While being captured.


Obtain resurrection,

Not accepting release;

Through an insurrection,

That has promoted peace.


The mocking and flogging,

Even chains and prison;

Inflicted by bogging,

Nothing has arisen.


Some were stoned, sawed apart,

And murdered by the sword;

Wrathful rage from the heart,

Commanded by the Lord.


For God has provided,

Something better for me;

That I am invited,

Up to Heaven to see.
