 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


The Spirit of the Lord God,

Is upon me to appoint;

For the poor that have been flawed,

Bringing the Good News to anoint.


To heal the brokenhearted,

Proclaim freedom to captives;

Bring hope for the departed,

Eternal life that one lives.


Proclaim the year of the Lord,

Brings favor to those who mourn;

And the ones who have ignored,

Gives vengeance where they sojourn.


He grants who mourn in Zion,

Giving them a nice headdress;

Like the mane of a lion,

Glorified with the gladness.


Ancient ruins be rebuilt,

Repairing devastation;

Everyone free of guilt,

To the new generation.


Strangers stand and tend their flocks,

Foreigners plowing their field;

While the Lord gently walks,

Being well pleased with the yield.


You shall be priests of the Lord,

They speak of you as preachers;

For you are in one accord,

Of the Word as the teachers.


For your shame shall be double,

But enabled to rejoice;

Since God pulled you from rubble,

When summoned Him by your voice.


For the Lord does love justice,

And hates it when you do wrong;

Because you are so precious,

And wanting you to belong.


For your offspring shall be known,

Descendants amongst others;

As next in line for the throne,

Being as righteous brothers.


For as the earth starts to bloom,

From the garden that was sown;

That chases away the gloom,

Brings grace as God to condone.
