Biography of Richard Merrell
I write Christian studies and poems, so that others might be blessed, encouraged and helped in some way, for we should 'love one another as the Lord has loved us'
I have had various poems published over the years in the press and various magazines and in small collections, also my poetry has been translated into the Telugu dialect of Southern India; and now through PoemHunter I can share poems and encourage others in the 'faith once delivered to the saints' Jude 1: 3 for which I am thankful.
For a free CD with Bible studies and my poems done as a web page, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I also pay postage so there is no cost to anyone. The reason I do this is that the Lord Yeshua said to his disciples, 'Freely you have received, freely give'

Richard Merrell Poems
Freedom In Your Marriage?
Is there freedom in your marriage? Or is there bondage bringing woe Is there freedom in your marriage? This is what I'd like to know.
The Faithful Wife
The faithful wife in the Christ Obeys her husband's word; Claims her own authority By calling her husband, lord.
Little children are a gift An heritage in the Lord That we might learn humility According to God's Word.
Women Are Bad, Sinners
'Women are bad; sinners They are rotten to the core; women are bad; sinners' I've heard this cry before.
In the giving of these two rings, Which speak of love that's true; We understand that marriage is Unbroken, ever new.
The Judas Kiss
It was the Judas kiss Which betrayed our Lord that night; Judas kissed him in the darkness He did not walk in light.
My Sabbath Rest
There is that legal day By which some keep the law, They have joined it unto grace And made faith a legal chore.
God Answers Prayer
GOD ANSWERS PRAYER If you will but believe, When you exercise faith
A Word From The Foetus
'I'm warm and feeling safe as I move around my room everything is soft and gentle inside my mother's womb.
Why Me Lord?
I've often asked, 'Why me Lord? ' 'Grace' was God's reply
Vote, Vote, Vote
He supports the Liberals But you, the ALP Others trust The Call to Aust. Or back the NDP.
Are you an Overcomer Walking in victory? Are you an Overcomer
Ye of Little Faith
I want to say, there's hope in God To ye of little faith Now little faith beats none at all For little faith means safe.
'Lord, we forbade that fellow he was not one of us how dare he cast out devils and cause a lot of fuss.'
Today I was angry with the Lord
I swore, and in my sin
I knew all along it was me
Not Him who was wrong.
My countenance fell, and in pique
I said that which I ought not to God;
And yet I knew that I would
In the end, come seeking forgiveness from Him;
Which I did, and God asked 'Why blame me? '
