Believing God's Promise
eyes see the beauty of husband and wife,
She observes true love as she journeys through life.
With reverence an aching she endures her test,
Believing God's promise that
she will be blessed.
Empty of the greatest privilege of all,
Still she stands fast heeding God's call.
Her days productive her hours well spent,
God watches lovingly to see her intent.
Valiant and virtuous she walks
a straight line,
Giving her all and choosing to shine.
Angels surround her and hold her near,
Calming her ache and soothing her fear.
Tears on her pillow a yearning for more,
Day after day she seeks to endure.
and striving for the absolute best,
Lonely and aching she finishes her test.
Brought home to heaven she receives her place,
And looks with joy at her Saviors face.
No longer empty, no tears of pain,
Only peace and love
Her voice unsteady she speaks with care,
Thank you God for all you share.
Thank you for sacrificing your life for me,
For giving me strength and setting me free.
Thank you for the family you have prepared
Through you dear King my dream is known.
My tears are joy and all is clear,
You stayed for me, and brought me here.
My cup you fill, my soul you claim,
Great Jehovah I praise your name!
