The Hand That Rocks The Cradle

Bright Eyes by Trisha Romance

This is a beautiful poem whose meaning is very true. It is an encouragement to our generation of Christian women to continue raising the next generation for Christ. Their children's impact on the world is immeasurable. Let us pray that each life is raised to continue on in the quest for expanding the kingdom of God.

WHAT RULES THE WORLD
by William Ross Wallace
Blessings on the hand of women!
Angels guard its strength and grace,
In the palace, cottage, hovel,
Oh, no matter where the place;
Would that never storms assailed it,
Rainbows ever gently curled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.
.♦.♦.♦.
Infancy's the tender fountain,
Power may with beauty flow,
Mother's first to guide the streamlets,
From them souls unresting grow—
Grow on for the good or evil,
Sunshine streamed or evil hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.
.♦.♦.♦.
Woman, how divine your mission
Here upon our natal sod!
Keep, oh, keep the young heart open
Always to the breath of God!
All true trophies of the ages
Are from mother-love impearled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.
.♦.♦.♦.
Blessings on the hand of women!
Fathers, sons, and daughters cry,
And the sacred song is mingled
With the worship in the sky—
Mingles where no tempest darkens,
Rainbows evermore are hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

  2. What is that quote?

    "Behind every famous man is a woman"
    Or something like that. Except the real quote is probably very poetic. =>

  3. Thanks Livvy for the wonderful poem!

    @Reluctant Dragon-
    The quote you mentioned is actually by a feminist... it's made to show that men can't be famous unless they have a supior woman behind them.

    Thanks Livvy!
