 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove
God makes a new Heaven and earth,
Former things shall not be remembered;
So, by giving us a new birth,
And awakening those who slumbered.
 
Be glad and rejoice forever,
In that which the Lord will create;
For a joy that will not sever,
As gladness will not deviate.
 
In it no longer shall be heard,
The sound of weeping in distress;
As to what has been in the Word,
That the Lord continues to bless.
 
No longer shall there be in it,
An infant who lives a few days;
Or elders who do not merit,
The actions of that one obeys.
 
The young man shall die hundred years,
But the sinner shall be accursed;
Rewarding anyone that fears,
All of the righteous ones that thirst.
 
They shall build their houses to dwell,
They shall sow fields and eat their fruit;
The righteous will be far from hell,
In harmony not to refute.
 
Sinners shall not build and not plant,
Stealing from another to eat;
Like the grasshopper to the ant,
Having laziness on their feet.
 
For just like the days of a tree,
Shall be the same of His people;
His chosen enjoys being free,
With worshipping in the temple.
 
 So, they enjoy work with their hands,
But they shall not labor in vain;
The offspring abide with commands,
Not to be burdened with the pain.
 
For it shall come to pass to call,
As they are speaking, He will hear;
The Lord will save them when they fall,
All who continue to revere.
