 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


The Lord comforts His people,

Speaking tenderly to them;

Announcing in the temple,

No longer will He condemn.


Forced labor is now finished,

Iniquity is pardoned;

No longer to be tarnished,

What made your hearts be hardened.


Prepare the way for the Lord,

Make a road in the desert;

Remaining in one accord,

He comes to give you comfort.


Every valley lifted,

Mountains and hills leveled;

The Lord see you as gifted,

Seeing you He is reveled.


God will smooth out the rough land,

As His glory will appear;

He will make fertile the sand,

All will see both far and near.


So, what should I then cry out,

Humanity is all grass;

I just do not have a doubt,

What happens as time does pass.


Grass withers as flowers fade,

The breath of the Lord will blow;

And fallen leaves have decayed,

While the autumn winds flow.


But the Word stays forever,

Heralding of the Good News;

That will not burn or sever,

Allowing the right to choose.


Raise up your voice shout out loud,

Raising it and do not fear;

Looking up into the cloud,

Knowing that the Lord is near.


A shepherd that guards His sheep,

Ensures to protect the flock;

His watchful eyes never sleep,

Safe while soothed from His talk.
