MARRIAGE IS A PRISON FOR THOSE WHO MARRY WRONGLY
Composed by Z. A. Ogunsanya, 16/11/2019. The song started in my heart, in my room, around 11:17pm, while meditating on my Sunday sermon, which has to do with marriage. God helped me to complete the writing of all the stanzas by around 1:10am.
Chorus: Marriage is a prison
For those who marry wrongly
Marriage is so joyful
For those who marry
According to the will of God.
1. My brother (sister) pray well, look well
And receive the rightful counsel
Do not step into marriage
Before knowing the will of God.
2. Once you are married you are
Forever join to your partner
Whether she’s so good or bad
Unless you want to miss heaven.
3. The one you will choose must have
Compulsorily two qualities
He must be genuinely saved
And be chosen by God for you.
4. Don’t marry any person
Just because he is from your tribe
Or because you just like her
This may prove to be so dangerous.
5. Being wealthy or beautiful
Should not be your reason to choose
Any person to marry
This may lead you to a wrong choice.
6. Some people in the church may
Not be right for you to marry
For they are not born again
Or not chosen by God for you.
7. Don’t reject a believer
That approaches you for marriage
Because he lacks something now
No condition is permanent.
8. Refuse to marry without
Full assurance of God’s leading
The counsel of your pastor
And the consent of your parents.
