 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I extol you, O Lord,

For you have drawn me up;

Being in one accord,

You bless me in my cup.


O Lord, I cried to You,

For help and You healed me;

For You guided me through,

Giving insight to see.


You have brought up my soul,

From hell and restored me;

That I could reach my goal,

Because You heard my plea.


I sing praises to You,

Give thanks Your holy name;

Remembrance as I knew,

And proceed to proclaim.


Anger has a moment,

Favor for a lifetime;

A disciplined torment,

That will help me to climb.


For weeping may tarry,

Continue through the night;

But joy starts to carry,

Me through the morning light.


I shall never be moved,

From Your prosperity;

Whatever is behooved,

For my sincerity.


For my mountain stands strong,

As my faith has obeyed;

That has helped me along,

Avoid those who have preyed.


To You, O Lord, I cry,

Pleading for Your mercy;

See my soul through my eye,

Without controversy.


What profits in my death,

If I go down to hell;

Rather renew my breath,

To Heaven I can dwell.


You turn morning to joy,

For glory praise to sing;

Since my foe You destroy,

Such happiness You bring.
