There is one person in your church,who knows your preacher's life.
She's wept and smiled and prayed with him, and that's your preacher's
She knows one prophet's weakest point, and knows his greatest power.She's
heard him speak in trumpet tone, in his great triumph hour.
She's heard him groaning in his soul, when bitter raged the strife, as
hand in his she knelt with him-- For she's a preacher's wife!
The crowd has seen him in his strength, when gleamed his drawn sword, as
underneath God's banner folds, he faced the devil's horde.
But she knows deep within her heart, that scare an hour before, she
helped him pray the glory down, behind a closet door!
You tell your tales of prophets brave,who walked around the world, and
changed the course of history,\ by burning words they hurled.
And I will tell how back of them, some women lived their lives,
Who wept with them and smiled with them-- they were the preacher's wives!
