Devotional Poetry, Biblical Poems, In You Alone

Biblical Poetry
Early in 2017, I felt prompted by the Lord to start writing Biblically oriented poetry that is intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word. This is something I've never attempted before, but felt very drawn to it by the Lord. In obedience to Him, I have sensed a whole new realm of God's grace as I have begun to write in this way. I hope you enjoy them.

In You Alone
By Ken L. Birks

In You alone I trust as I lean upon Your Word and Spirit.

Your word is a lamp unto my path as I look to You alone.

You are the One who gives direction to the weary one.

Day by day I wait upon You as I drink from Your Spirit.

Your Word washes over me and renews me daily as I hear it.


You alone breathe life into the weary soul, only to revive.

I cast all my cares upon You, my burdens, You relieve.

As I wait, Your divine ability flows through me as I believe.

You alone cause me to mount up on the wings of an eagle.

My spirit soars as I’m seated in heavenly places with You.


Your Spirit and Word fill my mind with Your thoughts, so fine.

With the mind of Christ, I go forward into all that is now mine.

You have given to me all things that pertain to life and godliness.

Your divine nature now belongs to me as I press onward.

In You alone, towards the upward call and prize, I press forward.


With Your precious promises, I have escaped to You alone.

The corruption of the world no longer has a hold on me as I soar.

In You alone, we will forever walk together in Your love, I adore

I am now complete and made whole as Your love washes over Me.

Forever grateful, as I stand in your presence, righteous I will be.



This poem expresess the importance of allowing God alone to fill your mind with His thoughts, be your problem solver, escape arrtist and more as He continutally breaths life into your spirit.
