 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


The Lord possessed me from the start,

As the first of His acts of old;

To begin His way to impart,

As the mystery would unfold.


Ages ago I was set up,

Before beginning of the earth;

For drinking new life from the cup,

Giving wisdom at time of birth.


There were no depths I was brought forth,

No springs abounding with water;

Nothing was seen both south and north,

Brings forth a son or daughter.


Before the mountains did take shape,

I was brought forth before the hills;

Engineered to mold the landscape,

Rivers form as the water fills.


Before the Lord had made the earth,

The first of the dust of the world;

With the fields yielding of its worth,

Around the sun that it is hurled.


When He established the heavens,

He drew a circle on the face;

Desires are filled with passions,

The Lord is prepared to embrace.


The Lord made firm the skies above,

Established fountains of the deep;

He allowed the pouring of love,

To flow over His flock of sheep.


He gave the ocean His decree,

The waters to limit for land;

Might not transgress leaving land free,

Places where the creatures would stand.


The Master Workman beside me,

I was daily of His delight;

Rejoicing before Him to see,

Everything within my sight.


Rejoicing in His habitat,

He delights in children of man;

The family that they begat,

Being fruitful within His plan.


Whoever finds the Lord finds life,

And obtains favor from the Lord;

But he who fails will drown in strife,

Any pleas to God are ignored.
