Spiritual Woman

We've all heard of the "Phenomenal Woman". Well, what about the "Spiritual Woman"?

Worldly women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not flashy, conceited, or caught up in my size.
But when I tell them it's the Jesus in me, they think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the strength of God's arms,
The feel of His love.
He orders my every step.
Honey, I'm covered in His blood.
I'm a Woman,
A Sanctified Woman,that's me.

I walk into church, just as cool as I please.
I may grab a fan and raise my hand,
Or worship falling down on my knees.
The spirit comes up out of me to make my soul fly free.
I say,
It's the fire in my bones.
Unspeakable joy that's so sweet.
It's the wing in my dance
On my Holy Ghost feet.
I'm a Woman,
A Spirit-filled Woman,
that's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
Oh they try so much,
But they can't touch
My inner chastity.
When I try to tell them,
Those lustful eyes still can'tsee.
I say,
No, I'm not looking back.
I'm not fooled by your smile.
I'm waiting on God.
Worldly men cramp my style.
I'm a Woman,
A Living Sacrificial Woman,
that's me.

Now you understand just why my head's not bowed.
Why I shout and jump about,
Or praise and sing out loud.
When you see my light shining,
It ought to make you proud!
I say,
It's the faith I have in Jesus
Through all my ups and downs.
Each experience, each testimony
Leading straight to the jewels in my crown.
I'm a Woman,
A Sanctified,
Washed in the crimson tide
Spiritual woman--
Yeah, that's me.
