A Palace for the King

Inspired by Psalm 132 and Psalm 125

My heart is like Jerusalem
A palace for my King
A place for righteousness to dwell
A place where praises ring

Until You found Your place in me
I rested not my eyes
You came that night and conquered me
So take the victor’s prize

Now come and take my everything
My life, my heart, my best
Your love has made a place–Arise
Yehovah, to Your rest

You chose to make Your home in me
You washed me–made me clean
You clothed me in Your righteousness
I cannot help but sing

With all the saints I shout for joy
That I have been set free
You set Messiah’s lamp in me
It shines for all to see

And as Mount Zion firmly stands
My heart shall not be swayed
For He will make me strong; in me
His palace has been made

As hills surround Jerusalem
His love surrounds my heart
For Yehovah will keep me safe
From foe, or sword, or dart

The King of all has chosen me!
In me His Spirit dwells!
And any time I think of this
My heart with gladness swells

I am a seventeen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!

  1. Maybe all poetry does this…or maybe you’re just a good poetry writer, Faith (I don’t read much poetry except for yours though)…but it is beautiful, challenging and uplifting all rolled into one. ❤️

    1. Thanks! It’s really Yehovah Who gives me my poetic ideas, so if it’s inspiring it’s all from Him!

      I’ve read enough poetry to be able to tell you that not all poetry is beautiful, challenging, and uplifting. I’m pretty picky on what poetry I like, or more like, what poets I like.
