Psalm 61 Reflection

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I

My strength has waned

Oh hear my cry

A mighty tower you are to me

Ever Present when I plea.


You are my refuge, I am weak

your mighty power 

is what I seek

I long to dwell and learn such things

Beneath you loving caring wings


Preserve me from the evil one

That I might live

Proclaim your Son

To Sing your praises every day

Fulfill my vows that’s what I pray.

I’m a 74 year old retired engineer who lives in County Down N. Ireland. I’m now a widower since 2018. I have two children and three grandchildren who all live in the same area. My poetry experience started when I realised I had a knack for amusing rhyming verses regarding people in the office etc. I was then in demand for retirement poems and wedding receptions. I was raised in a Christian home and came to faith at a young age. Like a lot of young folk I was tempted by worldly things. Although during this time I never forgot my commitment and prayed for forgiveness and read my bible when I could. During my wife’s long illness I determined to commit myself fully once more and I started to attend church services again. I have recently attempted to try and write poems that could help others in their faith although I’m far from prolific. My style is still simplistic and generally rhyming.
