The LORD's Voice

Give to the Lord glory and strength,
Ascribe to the Lord you mighty;
Persevering at any length,
Pray while listening nightly.

Ascribe to glory due His name,
Worship the Lord in splendor;
As His holiness to proclaim,
For His touch ever so tender.

His voice is over the waters,
As the God of glory thunders;
Protects your sons and daughters,
From the enemy that plunders.

The powerful voice of the Lord,
His voice is full of majesty;
To hear is loved and adored,
Because of truth and honesty.

The voice of the Lord will break wood,
He will make you skip like a deer;
Just like the young wild ox could,
For worshipping as they revere.

The voice of the Lord flashes flames,
As He shakes ground in the forest;
Renewing the land and proclaims,
With fire consumes where poorest.

The voice of the Lord will give birth,
To the beasts of the wilderness;
To populate over the earth,
In His glory as He will bless.

The Lord sits enthroned on the flood,
The Lord sits enthroned as the King;
His voice will clean the sinful crud,
And corruption that it would bring.

May the Lord be giving you strength,
May the Lord bless and give you peace;
As perseverance through any length,
For a solace never to cease.

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…
