 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


The Lord has searched me and knows me,

He knows when I sit, and I stand;

He knows what I hear, and I see,

He knows what I do understand.


He knows all my thoughts and my dreams,

Observing my travels and rest;

Compassionate to what it seems,

When I am not doing my best.


The Lord is aware of my way,

Before a word is on my tongue;

And if my heart going astray,

By the thoughts that have been flung.


The Lord already knows about,

Before I even have done them;

Never to have a shred of doubt,

With compassion not to condemn.


He has placed me upon His hand,

Encircled me with His wisdom;

It is lofty to understand,

Of the beauty of His Kingdom.


I am unable to reach it,

Through the efforts that are my own;

But knowing what I inherit,

I am able to reach His throne.


Where could I ever go escape,

Able to flee from His presence;

A cloaking device could I drape,

Would be hiding me in essence.


Up to Heaven He would be there,

The same if I went down to hell;

For He shows how much He does care,

Where I have made my bed to dwell.


If I take wings of the morning,

And fly until I meet the west;

He would follow without warning,

Comforting me so I could rest.


Surely the darkness cannot hide,

By secluding me from His light;

Even though I may not confide,

He knows my secrets in the night.


The Lord knew me within the womb,

And I will be praising His name;

He knows when I go to the tomb,

And go to Heaven to proclaim.
