 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

In that day shall this song be sung,

That we have a real strong city;

Singing by both the old and young,

Where the walls are tall and pretty.

 

Open the gates for the nation,

So that the righteous can enter;

Trustworthy for the salvation,

For avoiding the tormentor.

 

God keeps those safe maintaining trust,

Their faith is maintained within Him;

Disregarding pleasures of the lust,

And are given spiritual vim.

 

Trust in the Lord throughout each day,

As an enduring protector;

Love and honor as you obey,

No longer as an objector.

 

He knocks down those who live on high,

Brings down an elevated town;

Throwing down to the dust who try,

In an attempt to steal His crown.

 

They are trampled under His feet,

That have oppressed soles of the poor;

In triumph He sounds their defeat,

Like a lion a fruitful roar.

 

The righteous way remains level,

Along the straight and narrow path;

A path that avoids the devil,

And will be spared from any wrath.

 

Wait for Him as judgments unfold,

Desiring that His fame will grow;

As you proclaim as it is told,

The benefits He will bestow.

 

I look to Him throughout the night,

My spirit within me that seeks;

Wisdom coming from His insight,

For hearing His voice when He speaks.

 

If the wicked are shown mercy,

They do not learn about justice;

Since they are unable to see,

How to deal with being righteous.

 

For the Lord is ready to act,

They will see and be put to shame;

By angered judgment as a fact,

Fire consumes He will proclaim.
