The Outcast - Poem by Reginald Walker

I will not fear, nor will I be dismayed,
I will be delivered from my trials and troubles.
I will have peace and I will not be afraid.
God is with me to save me.
Although, my enemies try to destroy me,
I will not be destroyed.
God strengthens me with his presence.
Through God’s power, my enemies are overcome.

My wounds are incurable,
My body beyond healing.
There is no one to help me.
There is no cure for my pain.
All my friends have gone and forgotten me,
As if they really cared anyway.
So, why do I cry out over my wound?
Why do I even mention my pain that has no cure?
I have faith in God to strengthen me.
I know I will be saved and healed.
God will restore my good health.
He will heal all my wounds.
I am called an outcast.
I am the outcast for whom God cares.

God will restore my fortunes.
He will rebuild my ruined life.
God will restore my good health.
He will heal all my wounds.
God will stand me in my proper place.
He will establish me as one of his own.
God will bring me home to be with him.
I am devoted to being close to God.
I am the outcast for whom God cares
