The faithful husband loves as Christ
The wife he has been given;
He must be as Jesus to her
And make her life as heaven.
He must bear her up always
Present her unto himself;
As a pure and chasted bride
His wife is his true wealth.

Submitting unto Jesus as Lord
He is given authority;
To take the things of Christ above
And teach his family.
The faithful husband is as Christ
Who died upon that ROD -
And loved His bride unto the end
He submitted unto God.

Ephesians 5:22-25; Philippians 3:8
