The Pastor's Wife

She sits there and waiting at home all alone,
Setting the example, setting the tone.
Waking up in the dark of night,
And her husband nowhere in sight--
	This is the life of a pastor's wife.
Cooking a meal, and then he is late,
But so patiently she'll sit and wait.
Then so tired he goes off to bed,
Just eating a little of what he was fed--
	This is the life of a pastor's wife.
Hearing the money she skimped hard to save
Would help someone needy, if only they gave,
And seeing him take it and give it away,
Then God blessing the sacrifice in just a few days--
	This is the life of a pastor's wife.
Rearing the children when he is not there,
Knowing he trusts her with their love and care,
Knowing so much he can't tell her he knows
Of sessions of counsel where many will go--
	This is the life of a pastor's wife.
It can get lonely, and it can get drear
To be without often when she wants him near.
It's still a position she chose for her life,
To be that supporter, the help meet, his wife--
	This is the life of a pastor's wife.
