Wives place themselves under their spouse,
As they place themselves under God;
The husband as head of the house,
And should be respected and laud.
The husband is over his wife,
As Christ is the head of the church;
Married for the rest of your life,
Together through this life you search.
Jesus Christ is your Savior,
Making the church as His body;
Show your love and He shines favor,
Being humbled and not gaudy.
Husbands must always love their wives,
Just as Jesus Christ loves the church;
Willing to sacrifice their lives,
Like eagles warding on a perch.
For Christ has made the church holy,
By purifying through His Word;
As He remains meek and lowly,
And we ensure that it is heard.
We can present it in glory,
Without any kind of stain;
As it goes down in history,
Having no blemish to retain.
Without wrinkles and without faults,
That all husbands will love their wives;
No violence causing assaults,
In harmony throughout their lives.
For your own body never hate,
You take care and give it some food;
As you should also compensate,
Your spouse in a good attitude.
For a man will leave his parents,
And be united with his wife;
As the person of importance,
For the remainder of his life.
