 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

This is what we proclaim to you,

As it was since the beginning;

What we have heard is very true,

And that we have to stop sinning.

 

For what we have heard and have seen,

Through our ears and our eyes;

What our hands touched that has been,

The Word of life does not have lies.

 

Because Word of life was revealed,

And we have seen to testify;

Since the Book of Life is unsealed,

As proof that no one can deny.

 

For eternal life is given,

To those who name has been inscribed;

In the Book of Life in Heaven,

As the elite, you have been prescribed.

 

What we have seen and heard are told,

So that we have the fellowship;

To what the future will unfold,

Enduring the strife and hardship.

 

So, I write these things to complete,

Our joy for the salvation;

And we are able to defeat,

Sinning for a new foundation.

 

So, the message of the Gospel,

That we have heard and declare to you;

God is light unto the people,

Luminance that is pure and true.

 

For in Him there is no darkness,

Pure light for having fellowship;

Blended beauty with no starkness,

Divine pleasure having kinship.

 

If fellowship we claim to say,

But constantly walk in the dark;

Finding ourselves gone astray,

Deception is where we will walk.

 

We are not practicing the truth,

For we have sinned and a liar;

We are rude as well as uncouth,

And deceptive amplifier.

 

But if we confess our sin,

We will be walking in the light;

Cleansed of the guilt that is within,

Disciplined to do what is right.
