 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


You delight in the truth,

In the inward being;

Despising the uncouth,

That are blind not seeing.


You teach me the wisdom,

Within the secret heart;

That flows from Your Kingdom,

So that I may impart.


Purge me with the hyssop,

So that I shall be clean;

Let me drink from the cup,

Made pure as it had been.


Make me as white as snow,

Show the way to be glad;

To see the gladness flow,

Rejoicing and not sad.


Help me lift up my voice,

Hide Your face from my sin;

Enabled to rejoice,

For new life to begin.


Make a clean heart in me,

Renew a right spirit;

Giving insight to see,

What I will inherit.


Discard me not away,

Let Your Spirit remain;

Please do not let me stray,

And come to Your domain.


Restore to me the joy,

Building a foundation;

And never to destroy,

Hope in Your salvation.


I will teach transgressors,

Your ways to the sinners;

Not to be aggressors,

And become the winners.


For You will not delight,

To bid a sacrifice;

Help me do what is right,

Let this place not entice.
