Man Or Woman?

God fashioned man to live and rule
The world to overview
To be for God a precious tool
For wonders yet to do

God knows the heart of whom He’ll choose
Who’s soul He’ll fill with Light
Who’s life is right so He can use
To fight the righteous fight

To fight the source of sin and shame
Stand firm with Christ as Lord
Could boy or girl not do the same
As God’s anointed sword

God’s children perish everywhere
This wayward world’s confused
If no man’s found God’s word to share
Could not a maid be used

Could not a lady fill the breach
Could not a woman lead
Surely a maid could preach or teach
Could help someone in need

Has God to ask permission first
Must God review His Plan
Should life’s procedure be reversed
To suit the pride of man

Has God not used a maid before
Did Deborah not command
Did not a man refuse to war
A battle Heaven planned

Be still and know The One who lives
Allow your eyes to see
Appreciate through whom God’s gives
The word to set us free
