 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Where were you when the Lord laid,

The foundation of the world;

And when Adam disobeyed,

Out of Eden he was hurled.


If you have understanding,

Who determined the decree;

What the Lord is demanding,

From everything you see.


Who determined measurements,

You must know who stretched the line;

And who made the improvements,

For a glorious divine.


On what were its bases sunk,

Or who laid the cornerstone;

Inspires when in a slump,

Comforts when you are alone.


When the morning stars all sang,

All the sons shouted for joy;

It sounded like the bells rang,

For glad tidings to employ.


Who shut the doors of the sea,

When it burst out of the womb;

Because of divine decree,

Before death locks in a tomb.


Who made the clouds its garment,

Thick darkness its swaddling band;

Who cause a disarmament,

From enemies in the land.


Who had prescribed the limits,

By setting the bars and doors;

Decrees what He prohibits,

Giving faith as hope restores.


Thus far you come no farther,

Here is where your waves have stayed;

So, listen to the Father,

No longer shall you have strayed.


For the Lord has commanded,

Mornings since your days began;

Caused as the dawn demanded,

All as spelled out in His plan.


Howbeit has the gates of death,

Ever been revealed to you;

Deep darkness after last breath,

No longer will you construe.
