It is good if you stay single,
And never try to get married;
Giving you the chance to mingle,
No family burdens carried.
If you control not desires,
Then maybe consider you should;
Satisfy sexual fires,
That only as a woman could.
A wife should never leave her man,
With winding up in a divorce;
Then remain single is the plan,
Or continue and stay on course.
A husband should not leave his wife,
Stick it out through both thick and thin;
Through the turmoil and the strife,
That happens time and time again.
If a Christian man is married,
To whom is an unbeliever;
Stay with her till she is buried,
Urge her to be a receiver.
The unbelieving made holy,
Because of a Christian husband;
Both will remain meek and lowly,
In front of God when they will stand.
A Christian man and woman that bond,
Must be keeping their marriage vows;
Until one of them goes beyond,
For the peace and love God endows.
How does a wife learn how to save,
As well as a man saves his wife;
Before they wind up in the grave,
Without knowing eternal life.
You must try to save and convert,
No matter what it just might take;
Pray to God who is the expert,
Knowing that He will not forsake.
