Listen to MY Words, Oh God...

Listen to MY Words, Oh God…


Listen to my words, oh God. 

Consider my meditation.

You are my God.  My fortress.  My salvation!


Listen to the voice of my cry..

 YOU are my king!

You’ve given me a reason

 to shout and sing!


Unto you Oh Lord…  Do I kneel and pray…

You are with me every hour and day!


My voice shall you hear in the morning…

As I read your word and

listen to your divine warning!


Unto you… My God.

 I shall direct my prayer…

You are omnipresent.  And are always there!


You take no pleasure in those

 who do wickedness

But delight in those who

 seek righteousness!


I shall come into your house

 of mercy and grace…

And shall spread your good

 news all over the place!


I shall worship you in your

 most holy temple

May I daily seek you and be a Godly example…


Thank you Lord for your patience

 and understanding…

As I lean on your arms that are everlasting!


You have given me a hope

 and love deep within.

It’s in you my Lord,

 where true life begins!


By Jim Pemberton  (c) 2010

Read Psalms 3:1-4

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!
