Thank God for the Pastor’s Wife

monet.jpgIn a previous post, I gave readers the opportunity to download a song for free, “He’s in Control” from the album He Shall Restore. I have now replaced that with another song: “Thank God for the Pastor’s Wife.” I will have it available through Christmas. Merry Christmas! The song is dedicated to my wife and on behalf of her to all pastors’ wives. This song will appear on an album to be released next year, Lord willing.Here are the words:

Thank God for the Pastor’s Wife

Copyright 2007 Michael Anthony Milton

You didn’t know
The places you’d go
On the day when you said “I do”
And you’ve traveled far
To be the person you are
But leaving is so hard to do
Yes leaving is so hard to do
But with grace and with poise
You’ve withstood the noise
Of the wounded who cry at your door
Seeking your husband
To help them find God
It seems like there’s always one more
If there’s crowns on that day and I have my say
I’ll plead that the Lord gives you mine
For when people heard me
What they couldn’t see
Was the deepest part of my life
“Thank God for the pastor’s wife”
When I heard the call
You caught it all
The moving, the setting up new
And when your husband hears voices
There’s few other choices
But to pray that He’s hearing aright
But you walked by faith and not sight
So many times you’ve suffered in silence
When some use your husband in vain
And few know the costs of following God
In the desert, in the night, in the rain
Covered dishes and circles and smiling through pain
For others see a pastor, a prophet and priest
But you see a husband, a dad
But the Lord heals you secretly and gives you the grace
And I’ve seen you laugh in the night at the bad
So I wrote this song
And I won’t be long
Though you deserve so much more
“Cause people can talk but you’ve walked the walk
You faithfully stood by the door
And nudged me to preach once more
If there’s crowns on that day and I have my say
I’ll plead that the Lord gives you mine
For when people heard me
What they couldn’t see
Was the deepest part of my life
“Thank God for the pastor’s wife”
No, honey, let me say this:
“I’ll Thank God that you were my wife”
