    If he loves God and His son Jesus
    Who supply the needs of all men
    And if he believes strongly on the cross
    About how the only begotten Son died for our sins . . .
    then he is for me

    If he loves his mother
    And treats her like a Queen
    But knows and believes what the Word says
    About letting no man come between . . . us
    then he is for me

    If he can openly express his feelings
    And doesn't mind shedding a tear
    And if he can be honest
    And admit that he, too has faced fear . . .
    then he is for me.

    If he doesn't mind standing before man
    And testifying how good God has been
    Or being the first to admit
    That daily he is tempted by sin . . .
    then he is for me.

    The Word says, "by their fruit ye shall know them"
    And this I truly believe
    So, I'm standing still and waiting
    On my blessing to receive.:x:

    allow me please...

    if she fears God
    can draw me nearer to God
    and a hearer
    then she's for me

    if she will allow me space and time
    to seek his face and mine
    then she's for me

    cooking would be nice
    i love red beans and rice
    and
    if she's done playing with mice then
    i am her man

    and if i shall cry tomorrow's rain
    her
    love would drench all sorrow and pain..
    then i'm her boy
    she's my joy

    if she needs strength
    encouragement
    wisdom
    and
    a little midnight rhythm to dance to before the night
    ends with prayer
    i want to be her man.
