 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

The Lord works righteousness,

Justice for the oppressed;

And showers godliness,

On all who are blessed.

 

He made known of His ways,

His acts to the people;

Disciplines all who strays,

Avoiding His temple.

 

The Lord is merciful,

As well as gracious;

Giving a beautiful,

Dwelling that is spacious.

 

For He is abounding,

Having a steadfast love;

All works so astounding,

For what comes from above.

 

He is slow to anger,

He will not always chide;

But is pleased to languor,

To all that will abide.

 

He does not deal with us,

According to your sin;

Nor repaying as thus,

Iniquities within.

 

For as high as Heaven,

That is above the earth;

Steadfast love is given,

Who fear that shows its worth.

 

As far as west from east,

He removes transgressions;

And prepares our feast,

After the confessions.

 

For He shows compassion,

To His children who fear;

Comforting in fashion,

While you are drawn near.

 

For He knows our frame,

Remembers we are dust;

Remembers our name,

Whoever puts their trust.
