Setting the Pace


 


I read in the Scriptures today,


Of a woman; whose style is so passé;


Jezebel's action is no way chic;


Ladies, when your man's a - sulking;


Bring him to his knees,


The Word we should heed,


Engage him in petitioning;


Don’t follow her fashion;


For we are His people fashioned;


Let Jesus lead;


 


 


In scheming and slandering,


Only God's ire we are provoking;


With fasting and praying,


His bounteous mercy we're amassing;


 


 


Don’t follow her fashion;


Jesus leads us;


We are trendsetters.
