Yielding by Raymond A. Foss

Husband and wives
called to a place of yielding
agape love
giving our will over
to one another, in love

Submitting like our savior
giving himself over to God
emptying himself wholly
to be filled by God’s love, his grace
becoming an offering

So we are to be with each other
part of God’s plan
that we would love one another
humbly, as a servant
giving our lives over
yielding to our partner’s will
