It takes a tough man to be tender
Ready to forgive and not blame
To give up his rights, to surrender
To take what most would call shame
But to lead best, you become weak
Let God’s strength be yours
Its in surrender, being meek
His full strength on you pours
Being tough is the way to be tender
She knows you’re willing to die
From your own evil, you must defend her
God sends you real strength from on high
2 Corinthians 12:9: And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Ephesians 5:28: So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
