And attested your undying love for her,
Expressing willingness to ford streams and swim across oceans,
So as to reach her and win her love;
Yet you knew that she was a daughter of the King!
Do you think it’s a small matter to become the King’s Son-in-Law?

You have taken her out on dates and gifted her ostentatiously,
And flaunted your charm in her face,
Exhibiting a deceptive character,
And her heart was smitten within her;
Yet you knew that she was a daughter of the King!
Do you think it’s a small matter to become the King’s Son-in-Law?

You asked your friends what you should do about your infatuation with a church girl,
And charmed the living daylights out of her,
You actively participated as one among the number,
And claimed to tend the Father’s sheep;
Yet you knew that she was a daughter of the King!
Do you think it’s a small matter to become the King’s Son-in-Law?

Now, casually, you walk in and out of her life,
With no regard of the promises you meaninglessly made to her,
You twisted her Love into something ugly,
And broke her heart into cold shards of ice;
Yet you knew that she was a daughter of the King!
Do you think it’s a small matter to become the King’s Son-in Law?

Listen, young man, and acclaim your Love if indeed it is,
Take her hand and strengthen each other in a walk of godliness and purity,
And a someday sometime will dawn for you reflecting such brilliance of Love,
When you shall take a stand before her Heavenly Father and men;
For you do know that she is a daughter of the King!
And it indeed is not a small matter to become the King’s Son-in-Law!
1st Samuel 18:23
