Place yourself under each other,
Out of respect for Jesus Christ;
Being like sister and brother,
And ready to be sacrificed.
Wives have to be under their man,
Under assurance from the Lord;
Allowing him to move his plan,
As long as Christ is not ignored.
Husbands are the head of his wife,
As Christ is the head of the church;
Remaining with her through his life,
Guiding family from his perch.
The church both body and Savior,
Because the church is under Christ;
As He looks on you with favor,
Helping you not to be enticed.
Husbands have give love to your wives,
Just as Jesus has loved the church;
Allow for the rest of their lives,
Leaving new avenues to search.
He had to make the church holy,
By cleansing it and washing it;
Purged with sacred water only,
For being spiritually fit.
So all corruption will halt,
For remaining sacred and pure;
To be holy and without fault,
That imperfection has a cure.
It is more than the spoken Word,
For the church must be without pain;
But as everything is heard,
Being free of wrinkle and stain.
So husbands have to love their wives,
As their bodies loving their own;
Remain through the rest of their lives,
The way the Father would condone.
The body is of many parts,
The same as the church and the Son
Not everyone can be hearts,
But together will become one.
