Proverbs 31:10-13, 20, 25-31 (NIV)
Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.
She extends her hand to the poor,
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates.
Virtuous Woman – Lyrics
Lord, make me a virtuous woman,
Hard-working, caring, and kind,
Keeping a home for my family,
And living Your design.
1. Give me the talent to make
All that my hands can supply.
Grant me the Spirit to manage it well
And bring my husband pride.
2. Cooking and planting to grow,
Nurturing children and seeds.
Lord, may I be a good wife to my husband
And gladly meet his needs.
3. May I have extra to share
And be giving and humble and meek.
For in this way I inherit the kingdom
And make my life complete.
Lord, make me a virtuous woman
Who is living Your design!
