The Faithful Wife


The faithful wife in the Christ
Obeys her husband's word;
Claims her own authority
By calling her husband, lord.

She will love her husband dearly
As she submits unto his hand,
Teaches younger women so
In this her family stands.

The faithful wife perceives in God
Her husband is given rule;
As he submits unto the Lord
But a rebellious wife is a fool.

    I agree. A wife must submit to her husband as the church submit to God. And a husband must love his wife as God loves His people. That's the biblical admonition. (Report) Reply
