-Hey little girl
Don’t you know how beautiful
amazingly courageous you are?
Hey, woman
ever since the world began
you nurtured and gave birth to every soul

By Him you were created
perfect and consecrated
pure and beloved you are
in Him you’re called, appointed
Chosen to be anointed vessels
a blessing to the world

Because you’re daughters of Eve
Daughters of Sarah, daughters of God

Hey little girl
through all ages you have been
oppressed, enslaved, abused and broken down
Poor woman
raped and beaten, mutilated, killed
humiliated, rights denied

Hey, little girl,
There’s someone who knows and cares about you
and who’s love will never fail
Hey, woman,
He’s your father, king and friend
For you He’s even given up his life

He will restore and heal you
Comfort, deliver you
From sin, pain and bondage in your life
You are his princess bride
accept his embrace, don’t hide
and be al you’re destined to be

You’re a daughter of Eve

(Daughters of Eve, van CD ‘Dew’ door Marlou van Essen)


  • We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. Moeder Teresa.

  • Het is beter een licht op te steken dan te klagen over de duisternis (naar uitspraak van Confucius)

  • Leg je leven in de handen van de Heer, vertrouw op Hem, Hij zal dit voor je doen: het recht zal dagen als het morgenlicht, de gerechtigheid stralen als de middagzon. (Psalm 37: 5,6)

  • Zoals de aarde haar gewassen voortbrengt, zoals een tuin het gezaaide laat ontkiemen, zo laat God, de Heer, gerechtigheid ontkiemen en glorie voor het oog van alle volken (Jesaja 61:11)
