    …if
    He knows GOD
    Then he knows faith
    And if he understands faith
    Then he understands commitment
    and loyalty
    …just the same

    For…
    If he knows GOD
    Then he knows love
    Because… “ GOD is love”
    And if he…* a natural man*
    Was formed in the image of the creator
    Then he was wonderfully and fearfully made
    A beautiful representation
    …and
    He will have that “certain something”
    That rests assuredly at the center of his spirit
    Rooted in the depth of his soul
    Felt…
    in the slightest move of his hand

    He must know
    GOD…
    because if he knows GOD
    Then he will be a man that prays
    And if he is a man that prays…
    He is a man…that will stay
    Kneeled…right beside of me
    Hand in hand…
    And he will not be one…. to run
    because his rock…is his faith
    and GOD…will order his steps
    therefore…
    he will understand the virtue of forgiveness
    and he will be…a humble man
    and he will love me instinctively
    as he was designed to do
    and I will love him…too
    and I will bear for him children
    and he will lead our family
    With me by his side
    His Woman…His Companion…
    the very air that flows through his lungs

    For…
    If he knows GOD…intimately
    He will not raise his hand to me
    He will discipline our seed firmly
    But with gentleness and understanding
    And he will know…that
    With the gift of power and strength
    There must also come…
    Knowledge, wisdom, and discipline
    Therefore…he will also know
    That I am…the jewel of his crown
    The lifter of his head when he is down
    His passion…throughout the night
    His peace and all that is right
    His violet sky…
    And velvet wind
    Forever, caressing his skin

    If he knows GOD…

    He will be a wise man
    And if… he is a wise man
    Then he will be a blessed man
    Blessed to know me
    …to love me
    And to spend a lifetime
    With his soul…pressed ever so lovingly
    Against mine…
    Because we will share a love
    That can only be found
    …when you open your heart
    To the Love of GOD

    …and then mine
