Gary the Poet's Pen
Versatile Psalmist 112.0
Ears To Hear
Blessed is the man who fears the Lord and thus understands
He is making a merry song in his heart with the angel bands,
His seed shall be mighty, multiply in grace, in mercy abound
Of blessedness and righteousness, their children are found.
This man shall walk upright with confidence in His provision
He shall be called a peacemaker, not one bringing division,
His wealth shall thus give great glory to the Creator of us all
His praise for the Lord God almighty shall be as a waterfall.
His holy storehouses shall overflow; in discretion shall he lend
When wayward cattle are loose, with a hammer shall he mend,
His house shall be called one of prayer and a source of the light
There will be humble lodging for those who travel in the night.
He shall not be afraid of evil tidings, a lighthouse not moved
In the midst of temptation and trials shall his faith be proved,
He will give to the poor and of his speech cast not aspersion
He will scatter his enemies with courage, valor and dispersion.
The wicked will remember these words and then shall gnash
Gnawing their teeth, the age of their iniquity a wave to crash,
He shall rejoice and recount these odes to those with two ears
Ushering in an age with singing of life without pain and tears!
