Wives must be under subjection,
Without delay or objection;
With confidence of your husband,
Being joyfully not saddened.
There is something that I have heard,
Some husbands disobey the Word;
They go out drinking through the night,
And love getting into a fight.
It makes a wife tremble with fear,
Cowardliness bringing a tear;
Their lives were reverent and pure,
Now they are feeling insecure.
As their wives just might win these men,
For Christ at some point in time then;
But live not saying anything,
While to the cross they will cling.
Let beauty not be external,
Beauty should be internal;
Beholding your chaste behavior,
To the words of your Savior.
Looking sexy brassy and bold,
Wearing jewelry made of gold;
Hairstyles and clothes that would lure,
Will make some men so immature.
Let beauty hidden in the heart,
Show the attractiveness to impart;
As the inner beauty from Christ,
So your husband is enticed.
