 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Who has believed what we have heard,

To whom has the arm of the Lord;

Has been revealed within the Word,

And that should never be ignored.


Who has believed our report,

That through the cross has been revealed;

For what the believers support,

The benefit has been unsealed.


He shall grow up as a young plant,

Like a root ascends from dry ground;

And that God would graciously grant,

His reign in Heaven to be crowned.


He had no form or majesty,

That we should be looking at Him;

No beauty or real dignity,

In a world that had so much grim.


He was despised and rejected,

While being a man feeling grief;

Treated by some as rejected,

But optimistic through belief.


One from whom men hides their faces.

Esteemed Him not rather despised;

Very few look for His embraces,

Rather someone who was chastised.


Surely, He had borne our griefs,

And carried out our sorrow;

For those who would have firm beliefs,

Through faith of hope for tomorrow.


Yet we esteemed Him to stricken,

Smitten by God and afflicted;

Punishment that one would sicken,

On one not being convicted.


He was pierced for your transgression,

Crushed for our iniquities;

A benefit of His passion,

For all our calamities.


All are like sheep have gone astray,

But laid on your iniquity;

For all who have turned to His way,

Ridding us of anxiety.
