 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

You have searched and known me,
You know when I sit down;
And when on bended knee,
Reason to wear a frown.
For you discern my thought,
As you search out my path;
Acquainted what I sought,
Guiding me from the wrath.
Even before a word,
That is leaving my tongue;
You have already heard,
Of what my mind has flung.
You know altogether,
Putting the hem in me;
The place we will gather,
For hearing your decree.
Such knowledge is so great,
Too wonderful to hear;
My life to compensate,
Acknowledge and revere.
Where can I go and hide,
Away from your Spirit;
For I did not abide,
From ill-fated merit.
So where shall I then flee,
Away from Your presence;
Somewhere you cannot see,
Because of defiance.
If I go to Heaven,
I know You will be there;
Where is a safe haven,
Without You would I share.
If I went into hell,
For there would be no doubt;
You would find where I dwell,
The place where I hideout.
The dark will not cover,
Because You are the light;
And You would discover,
Even the darkest night.
You made me in the womb,
And followed as I grew;
When I am in the tomb,
You will come to rescue.
