Lyrics: Who can find a virtuous woman?
One that is pure and stands for the truth
Surely she'd be more precious
than rubies or gold,
And the Father would lead her to His fold.
I want to be a virtuous woman.
Living by faith and standing for truth
Living my life with purity
Courageously I'll try to live by faith
one virtue at a time
One virtue at a time,
I'll stand with faith
and humbly seek the Lord's direction
Boldly pray, and hope with optimism
I'll forgive and
selflessly I'll choose to do His will
One virtue at a Time.
How can I be that virtuous woman?
Living by faith and standing for truth?
Daily I seek the wisdom to know what I should do,
I live by faith, one virtue at a time
Marilyn Gibbons wrote a very inspired script for our Young Women's New Beginning's Program. We searched the web for just the right song to go with the program, but none felt right.
That night, I read the script and as I pondered the message and the meaning of the program, the words for this song came right to mind. The melody, the 2 part harmony and the spirit was strong as I wrote this song in that night hour, and finished it the next morning.
Not often does that happen for me like that, but it did this time, and I will ever be grateful for the experience.
Marilyn was kind enough to let me put the program on this website as well. You may download the script with the link above and use it in addition to the music, or as a stand alone script.
This recording is just me singing multiple voices. I will try to update the recording if I can get one. (Please DO let me know if you have a recording you have made that you would like others to be able to listen to!)
