Handmaiden

Handmaiden

Willowy maiden there you stand---
Clutching onto the Father's hand,
Raptly you listen for him to speak,
Desiring only Jesus, as you seek.

God has seen your love so true,
Has a special gift for you---
One who won't your sweet heart break:
Will freely give and not just take.

Life he came to give a new.
Life he will implant in you.
Was the sorrow worth it dear?
Taste the sweetness of each tear.

Father God looks down on you.
Smiles as joy's glow floods through you.
It blesses him, he loves you so.
The cross was worth it, don't you know?

Handmaiden, heart so true,
What's the world's evaluation to you?
Handmaiden, made for a King,
Lift your arms and let your soul sing!

Handmaiden, decked out for him,
Spirit fruit and faith to the brim,
Handmaiden, the designer has gowns.
Dance before him, Lord of the Crowns.
