A beautiful representation
Of an obedient and godly woman;
Who is virtuous in her ways
And in integrity will stand.
Her husband always trusts her
And he knows she’ll do no harm;
She is generous and kind
As she extends her loving arm.
She works and is diligent
To provide for her family,
And reaches out to the needy
And to those in poverty.
She’s creative in her pursuits
And not afraid to invest,
And her fruitful ways yield dividends
As she provides her very best.
She isn’t clothed with fear
But understands her responsibilities;
She is draped in fine linen
Where God’s face she yearns to see.
She is wise and speaks with kindness
And protects her household indeed;
Her children recognise that she’s blessed
As she plants much faithful seed.
She is worthy like a gem
And like rubies she will shine;
Strength and honour are her clothing
With an anointing pure and divine.
She fears the Lord and has reverence
And her hands produce much fruit;
Her husband loves and praises her
And she is not afraid of truth.
She’s the epitome of a wife
And an encouragement to us all;
To inspire us by her example
To live as we are called.

“Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies, the heart of her husband safely trusts her, so he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life…she extends her hand to the poor, yes she reaches out her hands to the needy…She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praises her…charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands”
