A child of strength, filled with love, concerned for all she meets
Caring, sharing, giving-she knows their need
Everyday a challenge, few see the work she does
Her heart filled with God’s concerns, each day a day of love

A child of wisdom, people need the Lord
Her attitude one of kindness, never exhibiting her intellect
Humility at every turn, gentle beyond demand
Each day her heart renews her resolve, today is a day of God’s love

A child of sunshine, she bears light, her demeanor
Her face filled with His love, her heart overflowing with concern
Each person she meets feels this joy, uplifting, encouraging
Daily equipped to equip others to be better at life today

A child of pain, she knows the world and yet is not deterred
She is an emissary of the Lord High God, Jesus is His name
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, she knows this name and shares it will everyone she meets
Because her heart beats for Christ, her works display His love for her

A child of the Lord, she is called to minister, to those that are in great need
She helps them struggle through heartache, desperation and despair
Jesus is her guide; He loves her and she loves them because the Lord loves her
This is her joy, service, submission to the Lord, sacrifice

A woman of substance, serving people because the Lord loves people
A woman of joy, it radiates from her, it is who she is
A woman of commitment, every day she works for the Lord
A woman beloved of God, sorrows often her lot, peace from the Lord her foundation

Jesus loves her and she grows in this love day by day
She is His joy, she lives His victory, she knows His way
The Lord uses her every place she goes, people are drawn to her
IAS confidently, consistently walks with Jesus, He loves her totally and completely: God is Love
