 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Be gracious to me, O Lord,

Let me take refuge in You;

Please let me not be ignored,

Help me be faithful and true.


Shelter me under your wings,

Till the danger passes by;

I am fearful what it brings,

And maybe cause me to die.


I call upon the Most High,

Fulfills His purpose in me;

Answers when I question why,

By giving insight to see.


He reaches down from Heaven,

Saves me from tribulation;

Through the love He has given,

For my heart jubilation.


He confronts and challenges,

Evil that tramples my soul;

Love and truth encourages,

As I leave Him in control.


I am surrounded by beasts,

Desire to devour;

Of my flesh that each one feasts,

Would taste both sweet and sour.


Their teeth are spears and arrows,

And their tongues like a sharp sword;

But my Lord already knows,

To repel them with His Word.


Be exalted up above,

Let your glory fall on earth;

Allowing the flow of love,

Sanctifying a new birth.


My heart fixed and confident,

Unto God I will sing praise;

Let me be a resident,

Residing within your ways.


Wake up my soul at the dawn,

As I ascend to the cloud;

Whence from this earth I am gone,

And I join the righteous crowd.
