''Woman''

When God created the things that are At least he made a man And took a rib of Adams there to complete his wondrous plan And from that rib, a creature made And Adam named her Eve Because she is mother of all that lives The race she did conceive, She is fair and beautiful to see As flowers the earth adorn, And though he took her out of man All men of her are born Though history. of her see, Is marked by stain of sin Was woman,in Heaven chose Of her,the savior of men, A woman washed his feet in tears And wiped them with her hair And when they laid him in the tomb Was first to visit there And when the Son of God arose To make his Victory known To Mary Magdalene he went First saw him all alone,Though woman did at first transgress The serpent did beguile She's also first in righteousness God's service with a smile, And as you look around today You'll see far more of Eve And wonder if it isn't man now The Serpent does deceive For woman seems to far excel More faithful in the work And all the chores of living here She is seldom known to shirk But should I pick her greatest part Compare them one to other I'd have to say with all my heart The Greatest one is Mother Mother mine and mother wife And mother daughter's too And Mother wive's of our sons And Mother friends like you High and honored is your place Much more than Kings of men So much meaning in the name And so much Love therein!
