Woman You Are Strong

The burden you bear, the trouble you carry,
But God is not fazed because He knows that you are strong,
“Greater is He that is in you than he that is the world”.
Woman you are strong.
Woman you are able.
You can love when there is no hope, make a home where there is no peace.
See the woman of Afghanistan they send their sons to fight because fight they must, while they gather their daughers for safety.
Woman of Kenya, let their children feed on them when they themselves have nothing in their belly.
Because” It is written, not in bread alone doth man live, but in every word that proceedeth from the mouth of God”.
Woman you are strong, and your beauty hides your hardship.
In your arms you raise them; on your backs you carry them.
They are man, even though when they are kings they forget, you raise them.
Woman you are strong.
You have stopped many wars while you lay in bed with your beloved, and your arms have been home to many who are fatherless.
Children run at your feet, your smile is inviting.
You are hope personified.
When you weep your tears touch the very heart of God, and He is moved with compassion.
You are God’s secret weapon and have always been.
You gave birth to the Savior, and by Him the Power of God

Woman you are strong.

Woman you are able

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
