A Widow Threatened By Creditor



A Widow Threatened By Creditor

-A widow threatened by creditor

-An unpaid debt from the late husband

 -Hanging on the widow's neck-thinned

-Worst still and unmindfully noticed

-The vessels of her oil was finished

-A man of God's annoiting rescued

-When she called and they prayed

-And all her fears were quelled

 -And her stolen joys returned

-Her jars and vessels were filled

-The mercy of God came so hard

-And the woman had enough to give

-Even unto her neighbours she shared

-And her children were delivered

-From the slavery of paying a father's debt
