Lydia, The Woman Who Said Yes to God

She went to the river to pray.
Oh, what joy filled her heart that day!
An expert with cloth and purple dyes,
God heard and answered her heart's cries.

The Spirit sent Paul to Philipi.
He never questioned or asked why.
Paul went to find the place of prayer
so the gospel message he could share.

Lydia's response was from her heart.
Her faith in God grew from the start.
She invited Paul to her home.
From the God of grace she'd never roam.

Paul and Silas were thrown in jail.
They sang hymns, they didn't wail.
They went to visit Lydia again;
to encourage the women and men.
