Noble Wife and Suffering Servant

— Mel Morrison

 

A woman clothed with strength and dignity

Charm is deceptive and over time beauty flees

Woven from a rib and flesh from dust, Scarlett’s fearless

Her ashes repentance firestorm, forgiven

Harlot is crowned, a noble wife and woman

 

He grew up before him prophecy announced

Like a tender shoot, a root out of dry ground

No beauty or majesty in him found

But a man of great duty and suffering

He is not adorned in jewels and no prince charming

Is he a diamond in the rough or appalling?

 

She wakes while it is still night

Dina prepares breads and meals for family

Hungry footprints of the least coming to feast

She vigorously works and plants fields of tithing

 

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat

I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink

She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy

I was sick and you looked after me and a Kinsmen’s redeems

 

A woman came to him with alabaster jar of very expensive perfume

Aromas of worship flowed sweet honey over his head

Many, alarmed, “why pour such value on a man of no regard?”

No regard? “What she’s done has prepared me for burial and glory.”

The whole world will know from now on: “in memory of her.”

She brings good and not harm.

 

Suffering servant was despised and afflicted

Unto death he poured out his life

All sin past, present, and future, upon him

Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer

What will you repent to the LORD and offer?

 

She is clothed in fine linen and purple and the LORD will call you wife

For you are more valuable than rubies and sparrows

Jesus is Lord coming for his Bride
