My Lord and My God

My Lord And My God...

I waited patiently for the Lord.
He heard my cry and shout.
From the deep pit of darkness...
He brought me out!

He put a new song in my heart. A song of praise.
I shall put my trust in HIM... All of my days!

Blessed is he who trust in
the Lord God above.
How merciful and wondrous is the God I love!

His mighty works and awesome
deeds cannot be numbered.
Sacrifice and obedience to him,
will certainly be remembered!

I shall delight to do his will ...
the very best I can.
And will preach his righteousness
to every woman and man.

I will declare his faithfulness
and his plan of salvation.
And will speak of his loving
kindness to every congregation.

Lord God... I know you'll not hold back
your tender mercies from me.
Your lovingkindness and truth...
others shall see!

May all who seek hope... find it...
and be glad in YOU!
For you are magnificent in
everything you say and do!

You... Lord God... are my deliverance
when all seems hopeless and lost.
I am complete... because of Christ'
death on the cross.

Without you in my life...
I would certainly perish.
You are my God... and Lord...
whom I'll forever cherish!

Psalm 40:1:11 & 16

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
