Zion Glory



Arise and shine, your light arrives,
Because His glory has risen;
For the glory of the Lord thrives,
Freeing you from the sin prison.

The darkness shall cover the earth,
A gross darkness on the people;
Allowing wickedness its birth,
Entering into the temple.

The Lord arises upon you,
While His glory shall be seen;
Gentiles will see what is true,
Brightness of your light so serene.

Lift up your eyes around to see,
Seeing your sons shall come afar;
Your daughters are carried with glee,
Considered as your shining star.

You shall see and be radiant,
Your heart shall thrill and jubilant;
Your children are obedient,
While remaining vigilant.

The wealth of the nation arrives,
Many camels are abundant;
As your faith in the Lord revives,
Since His presence is evident.

The flocks come up with acceptance,
As He will beautify His house;
For His glory that will advance,
Bestowing blessings on my spouse.

Who are these that fly like a cloud,
As the doves fly to their windows;
So gracefully above the crowd,
Flying out over the meadows.

For the coastlands shall wait and hope,
Unto the name of our Lord;
While we continue to cope,
By remaining in one accord.

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…
