The theme of my song~

Thy mercy my God is the theme of my song
The joy of my heart and the boast of my tongue
Thy free grace alone from the first to the last
Hath won my affection and bound my soul fast

Without Thy sweet mercy i could not live here
Sin would reduce me to utter despair
But through Thy free goodness my spirits revive
And He who first made me still keeps me alive

Thy mercy is more than a match for my heart
Which wonders to feel its own hardness depart
Dissolved by Thy goodness i fall to the ground
And weep for the praise of the mercy i've found

Great Father of mercy, Thy goodness i own
And the covenant love of Thy crucified Son
All praise to the Spirit whose whisper divine
Seals mercy and pardon and righteousness mine!
All praise to the Spirit whose whisper divine
Seals mercy and pardon and righteousness mine!
Alleluia!


(Sandra McCracken, 2001 Same Old Dress Music)

It is very important that we understand that some women who do possess a gentle and quiet SPIRIT, but do not possess a gentle and quiet PERSONALITY do not get confused. I quite agree that a haughty spirit is of no use in the Kingdom, and can hurt others in the process. Let us just be sure though that we do not get in the mindset of seeing a loud and charismatic personality and calling it pride. This may not be the case in your instance, but let us be sure.
