A Maiden's Warfare

A Maiden's Warfare
by Carol A. DeLadurantey

Press on to heights of glory now,
And keep thou steady eye.

One must not falter in this fight,
Though some may flee of fly.

Take hold the charge thou hast been given,
To battle we must go.

But not with our own maiden hands
Do we take up shield or bow.

We wage this war in words and actions,
With our every deed.

We follow Christ our captain,
Thro' Him we will succeed.

Tell me now have we forgot
The charge from God above

To keep our hearts in purity, grace
Modesty, truth and love.

These are our weapons, our shields, our swords;
In this battle we now fight.

We strive not for an earthly king,
But for our God of truth and might!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful and blessed weekend!

Psalm 37:5-9

Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

Grace and peace,
