 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Bless the Lord, O my soul,

All that is within me;

Help me to reach my goal,

With the insight to see.


Bless of your Holy Name,

Forget not benefits;

In all that I proclaim,

And through all my merits.


Bless the Lord, O my soul,

You forgive all my sin;

Keeps me from the death toll,

By cleansing me within.


You heal me from disease,

Redeeming of my life;

You answer to my pleas,

To shelter from the strife.


You save me from the snare,

That Satan laid the lure;

Showing me that you care,

Salvation to assure.


Because of steadfast love,

From your mercy and grace;

Your tow line from above,

Rescues me from this place.


You satisfy with good,

Renewed like the eagle;

Guides the way as I should,

As to what is legal.


You work in righteousness,

Justice for the oppressed;

Without the viciousness,

That evil is obsessed.


You made known of the ways,

While slow to anger;

To be righteous all days,

A solace to languor.


As far as east from west,

You remove transgressions;

I continue the quest,

Within my confessions.
