Waiting

Ruth was gleaning grains in an empty field

Ruth, the Moabite, a foreigner

Ruth, a widow, a childless woman

Ruth was gleaning grains in an empty field


There was nobody she could rely on

She was surrounded by strangers

Many young men kept eye on her

Ruth was gleaning grains in an empty field


Ruth was a three-strike-out woman people said

She was a widow, a foreigner, a childress woman

Ruth had nothing to show to the world

Ruth was gleaning grains in an empty field


Nobody knew that she would be in the genealogy of Jesus

Nobody knew that Ruth would be an ancestor of the King David

People thought that she was just a three-strike-out woman

Ruth was gleaning grains in an empty field to feed her mother in law.
