 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


God is our refuge and strength,

Very present help in trouble;

Persevering at any length,

Rescuing me from the rubble.


So therefore, we shall not fear,

Even though that the earth gives way;

His strength helps us to persevere,

Resisting temptation to stray.


Even though the mountains are moved,

Deep into the heart of the sea;

Waters roar and foam are behooved,

The mountains tremble for mercy.


There is a river that has streams,

And makes glad the city of God;

The shining of His glory gleams,

Brighter as we honor and laud.


The holy dwelling the Most High,

God is within the midst of her;

As His presence will glorify

As the morning dawns to confer.


The nations rage, kingdoms totter,

He speaks His voice as the earth fades;

And causing boiling hot water,

As the non-believer dissuades.


The Lord of Hosts with us always,

God of Jacob our fortress;

Throughout all our nights and days,

Comforts us in times of distress.


Come behold the works of the Lord,

How He has brought rage on the earth;

Because the people have ignored,

About their God and His true worth.


He makes wars cease to end the world,

Breaks the bow and shatters the spear;

While the meteors are hurled,

Destruction from fire severe.


Be still and know that He is God,

To be exalted by nations;

Exalted to honor and laud,

For establishing relations.


For the Lord of Hosts is with us,

The God of Jacob a fortress;

Under His wing sheltered as thus,

Our refuge in times of distress.
