Righteous and Just

Righteous and just shall inherit the earth
The lord does chastise me so I see Him
Placed me in poverty pray I do right

Sinned throughout my life now I must think twice
Each and every hour this debt I owe
Righteous and just shall inherit the earth

Turn their backs they have people that I know
Failing in belief cause my will I give thee
Placed me in poverty pray I do right

A different path to walk to you I go
My destination is known you I fear
Righteous and just shall inherit the earth

Your punishment severe pain I endure
Forgiveness be time in you faith I trust
Placed me in poverty pray I do right

No longer without sight you freed my mind
The sanctuary I seek found in you
Righteous and just shall inherit the earth
Placed me in poverty pray I do right

    ..."Everyday I Pray All Day Long As The Psalmist Often Amid This Spirit's Longings & Moans, My Dear Precious & Priceless Beautiful Friend *.* 'We Walk By Faith Not By Sight' & Yessss, We Are The Clay Unto 'The Glorious Day' .... This Is A Very Enlightening & Beautifully Laced Within Love I May Say, Truthful, Moving & Inspiring Verse; 'Wonderful, Luv,'" Tristen :)
