Spiritual Woman – Adapted from Maya Angelou’s Phenomenal Woman by Keysa Davis

I had a really good friend share this with me several years ago and I loved it!!!  Thought I would share! Enjoy!!!

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,
Spiritually.
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,
Spiritually.
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,
Spiritually.
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,
Spiritually.
A Sanctified,
Bonafide,
Washed in the crimson tide
Spiritual woman–
Yeah, that’s me.
