I Am A Woman

I am a woman, called to be a servant
Bound by the grace that Your love imparts
Lord make me humble, teach me to follow;
Make me a woman of Your heart.

I am a woman, called to speak with wisdom
Shining a light that will lead to You.
Lord, give me courage to be Your witness;
Make me a woman of Your truth.

I am a woman, purchased by your mercy
Bought by the love that would spare no cost.
Lord, make me holy, loving you only;
Make me a woman of your cross.

--Claire Cloninger

Beautiful! This is TRUTH, not watered down feminist mumbo-jumbo. Women think what they want is power and authority, to take the place of their husband. But a woman is SO much more than that, so much purer and brighter. Her true happiness will only come through the heart of a servant, not a lioness. Thank you for sharing this! love you!
P.S. so glad to see you posting. :)

Actually Mrs. Debbie, this is a hymn set to the tune of Fairest Lord Jesus. I came across it in an old hymnal and found the words encouraging, so I thought I'd share it. :)
