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 email@example.com 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
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.
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.
In the giving of these two rings, Which speak of love that's true; We understand that marriage is Unbroken, ever new.
Women Are Bad, Sinners
'Women are bad; sinners They are rotten to the core; women are bad; sinners' I've heard this cry before.
Why Me Lord?
I've often asked, 'Why me Lord? ' 'Grace' was God's reply
Little children are a gift An heritage in the Lord That we might learn humility According to God's Word.
Your body is God's temple Where dwells the Spirit of the Lord, If indeed Yehsua be in you? Abiding presence of the Lord.
Trusting in YESHUA day by day Trusting in God, the only way; Trusting the Saviour every hour Trusting in the Spirit's power.
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.
Love God's Son
Love's obedience vastly earns Oracles from the Word Visions of the heavenly throne Everlasting in the Lord
I Am A Millionaire
I might not be among the rich Who have not many a care; But because I have Messiah Yeshua - I am a millionaire.
The Servant Of The Lord
The servant of the Lord Must be gentle to all men Avoiding foolish questions The unlearned do ever yen.
YESHUA is the Lord YESHUA is God's Son YESHUA is called Christ
Tithing Is But Dross
I used to tithe in years gone by As to the church I went I used to tithe in years gone by And give my ten percent.
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? '
