 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

I love the Lord with all my strength,
He is my rock and salvation;
Persevering any length,
My fortress with strong foundation.
He is my rock and my fortress,
My deliverer and my God;
I take refuge in times of stress,
My stronghold to honor and laud.
My strength in whom I will trust,
My buckler horn of salvation;
My high tower alerts of a lust,
That attempts of a flirtation.
For I will call upon the Lord,
Who is worthy of being praised;
As my enemies have ignored,
Since the devil has them enslaved.
The cords of death encompassed me,
As the ungodly causing fear;
Torrents of destruction I see,
But am confident God is near.
The sorrows of hell entangled,
The snares of death are confronted;
Feeling like I had been strangled,
The Lord ensured it prevented.
I called the Lord in my distress,
Unto God I cried for His aid;
Since He will strike down the oppress,
For with God I am not afraid.
From His temple He heard my voice,
As my cry to Him reached His ears;
Allowing me for to rejoice,
For He has calmed all of my fears
