Great Is the LORD

All of your works the Lord gives praise,
As all of the saints shall bless you;
The blessings will come all your days,
As long as you will remain true.

Of the glory of His Kingdom,
Talk of His power they shall speak;
For His knowledge and His wisdom,
Rewarding you from what you seek.

Make known to children mighty deeds,
Glorious splendor of His acts;
All the catering of your needs,
That Scripture explains as the facts.

His Kingdom is everlasting,
Endures through all generations;
His pure light is ever casting,
You enter as new creations.

The Lord upholds all that would fall,
Raising up all who will bow down;
Confession through prayer as you call,
As He gives you a golden crown.

The eyes of all look to the Lord,
He gives them food in due season;
Your needs will be never ignored,
Of what has a valid reason.

He opens your hand for giving,
To satisfy your desire;
That you are needing for living,
Sustaining life you require.

The Lord is righteous in His ways,
In all His works kind and holy;
Forgiveness for someone that strays,
When confessing of their folly.

The Lord is near to all those who call,
To all who call and are sincere;
He will rescue them from their fall,
To worship Him as they revere.

The Lord preserves all who will love,
While hearing all those who cry;
Wiping away their tears thereof,
Calming down of their stressful sigh.

Richard Newton Sherrer

I was born and raised on a farm in Pennsylvania. It was a small family farm that was handed down through 8 generations of Sherrer men until my father; Newton just could not make a living from it any longer. He thought that I would make a better living away from the farm. So, I decided to join the Air Force in 1969 upon graduating from high school. I gained quite a bit of experience and insight on life while in the service. Even though I was only stationed on the east coast of the US, my Air Force career took me to Germany and Korea. After 20 years wearing of the blue uniform, I decided going in a different direction and found myself becoming very diverse in many different fields. Something still seemed missing to me after being separated from the service for about 10 years. The Air Force was a way of life for me, but really missed life in Korea. I found myself changing careers again. Poetry was an interest of his since my days in high school. With returning to the Lord, I felt motivated to write of my Christian beliefs. I started looking at Bible verses and reflecting on my own personal experiences. The Bible was found to be as true today as to when the various books were written. I could see much of what the Bible is teaching us as valid as every in modern time. It felt only natural to me on using his personal experience based on Bible verses and see much of my own life written in the Scriptures. God inspires me what to write about though. I do not claim to be an expert on God or the Bible. I am just a Christian who has become enlightened to write poetic verses from the Holy Scriptures. more…
