 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

Teach me the ways O Lord,

The way of Your statutes;

To be in one accord,

Firmly planting my roots.

 

Keeping me without end,

With Your understanding;

What Your Law does intend,

That You are demanding.

 

So, let me keep Your Law,

Observing with my heart;

Cancelling any flaw,

Confessing to depart.

 

Please lead me down the path,

On the straight and narrow;

For being spared Your wrath,

That will come tomorrow.

 

Incline unto my heart,

Of Your testimonies;

That the delight can start,

To detect the phonies.

 

It is not selfish gain,

Of the things that I do;

Because what I proclaim,

Helping others construe.

 

For I have turned my eyes,

From looking at wrong things;

Worthless things I despise,

Of small pleasure it brings.

 

Please let your steadfast love,

Bringing me salvation;

Giving me peace thereof,

And build a foundation.

 

I walk in liberty,

In a very wide place;

Away from poverty,

To feel His embrace.

 

So, I lift up my hands,

In Him I meditate;

About what He commands,

That I will contemplate.
