When my babes were small;
So I could write no poems back then,
No, I wrote none at all.
But now my children are all grown;
And God has placed with me,
A lot of time upon my hands
That I should not let flee.
And God has placed within His Book
Words to let us know…
The Christian woman has a place
For all her love to grow.
It grows up in her children
And spreads through out her home;
It goes with them when they grow up
Where ever they may roam.
It spreads through out her neighborhood
And even through the town;
Her love can help lift up the ones
Who feel so trodden down.
It’s true our children need us most
When they are still at home;
But other people need us too,
When they are grown and gone.
So Christian women, let’s unite
And do the best we can…
Where ever we happen to find ourselves
On foreign or native land.
