A Godly Marriage

A prudent wife is from the Lord,”

King Solomon has said,

And unto him that findeth one,

Who of the Lord is led

To search out one who fears His Name,

That man shall not be put to shame.


For marriage is a picture of

Christ and His bride, the church;

So godly men must ever strive

When for a mate they search

To first of all seek inward beauty.

Love of the Cord, fervor for duty.


The home established in His fear

Where peace and joy abide.

Where Christ is honored, and His will

Rules all—whate’er betide:

That home the Lord will surely bless.

He’ll prove to them His faithfulness.
