Advice to Wives and Husbands

Show respect to one another,
By submitting to each other;
The same as being under Christ,
His authority is sufficed.

A wife submits to her husband,
His requests are not to be shunned;
Like a bird at the top will perch,
As Christ is the head of the church.

The husband is head of his wife,
And who will sacrifice his life;
Just as Christ did upon the cross,
The head must then render the loss.

For it is love through devotion,
A duty that placed in motion;
With obligation as the head,
That the husband must take instead.

Just as husbands must love their wives,
They are one rather than two lives;
And so he must never neglect,
Nor requests should never reject.

Both husbands and wives have their thrown,
But love each other as their own;
Without a wrinkled fault or stain,
And never trying to complain.

He leaves his parents for a wife,
With cleaving into a new life;
Being united then as one,
Just as the Father and the Son.
