 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I thank the Lord who has given,

Me the strength from in Heaven;

Because Jesus Christ is my Lord,

To whom I have loved and adored.


Being faithful that He has judged,

As being humble not begrudged;

Has appointed me to serve Him,

Because my outlook is not grim.


Before I was a blasphemer,

But Jesus is my redeemer;

Through Him I have mercy and grace,

Who has loved me as to embrace.


He has given me a relief,

Because I was in disbelief;

But He has gone and shown the way,

Continue not to go astray.


The grace of the Lord overflowed,

I never can repay what I owed;

For me with the faith and the love,

That has been flowing from above.


His Word having full acceptance,

For I abide in compliance;

As trustworthy and deserving,

I keep patience and unnerving.


Christ Jesus came to save sinners,

With salvation to be winners;

Of whom I am as the foremost,

Has been cleansed by the Holy Ghost.


I have mercy for this reason,

Since the Father gave us His Son;

So, I display perfect patience,

And was given a clear conscience.


Because who in Him that believe,

An eternal life they will receive;

The true God in glory and honor,

That I remain as a fawner.


I hold my faith in good conscience,

For my humbleness and patience;

Rejecting Satan and his deeds,

And catering to what God needs.
