 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


The one who lives under His wing,

The protection of the Most High;

Within the shadow it will bring,

Giving you a comforting sigh.


As my refuge and my fortress,

My God the Lord in whom I trust;

Surely knowing that He will bless,

Helping me to resist my lust.


For I know He will deliver,

From the snare set by the fowler;

From the net of the deceiver,

Who is also the night prowler.


He blocks the destructive plague,

He covers me with His feathers;

Healing me if I break my leg,

Shields me when a storm cloud gathers.


I fear not of terror at night,

The arrows that fly during day;

He will be my beacon of light,

As the lion is stalking prey.


Though a thousand fall by His side,

The pestilence will not reach me;

As I continue to abide,

He does give the insight to see.


He will only see with His eyes,

And give punishment to evil;

Able to see through a disguise,

That would be worn by the devil.


Because He is who is the Lord,

He is my refuge the Most High;

And I remain in one accord,

As I keep Him as my ally.


No harm will be coming to me,

No disease will be coming near;

For He gave me insight to see,

And the reason I do not fear.


For His angels come to protect,

Protecting me in all my ways;

I promise I will not reject,

In my living through all these days.


They will support me with their hands,

Never tripping on any stone;

For I adhere to His commands,

Soon I stand in front of his throne.
