Pastors wife poems are a unique way to tell your pastors wife how much you appreciate her. Pastors wives have a very challenging role to play in a church. They are not considered part of the church staff, but they often do as much ministry at and for the church as their husbands!
And while the pastor is very visible as he teaches, leads, and preaches, the pastor's wife generally ministers in the background.
But no matter what role the pastors wife plays in your church I can assure you of one thing: without his wife your pastor would not be half the minister...half the man...he is.
So use these pastors wife poems to show your pastors wife the appreciation she deserves.
I'd like to express my gratitude to Judy Crowe for allowing me to print so many of her pastors wife poems on this page.
This pastor's wife poem reminds us that a pastor's wife is "called" just as much as her husband.
We often hear of Heroes
on the news at night,
How someone went into a fire
To save someone else's life.
But, there's another hero
that we never hear about,
Though Her love and dedication
are never in a doubt.
Often took for granted...
Still she keeps on going
for the person by her side.
She stands beside him everyday
no matter what ... is thrown their way,
For he was called from above
To spread the message of "GOD'S LOVE".
And just as he was called...
She was hand picked too.
for it takes someone Special
to do what she must do.
And thou he may get the Glory
and he may get the Fame,
She will stand beside him in Love
and Help him just the same.
She's the person he turns to
when he needs a friend,
She will always be there till the
I would like to take this moment
to introduce to you,
a LOVELY unsung Hero for whom
GOD hand-picked to spend Her life
as The Pastor's WIFE.

This pastors wife poem describes the role and pressures of this very important person.
She's a Godly woman, she has such grace
Always a warm greeting, a smile on her face.
She's always encouraging, she knows her place.
She is - The Pastor's Wife.
She has to always look just right
Always on time, though the schedule's tight.
From early morning, 'til late at night
Always - The Pastor's Wife
She's such a Lady, everyone's friend
She serves with love from deep within.
All the rifts she tries to mend
Oh she's - The Pastor's Wife
She carries your burdens, she prays for you
Sometimes she cries the whole night through.
But you won't know when she's feeling blue,
'Cause she's - The Pastor's Wife
At church as she starts to walk up the aisle,
So many need to stop and talk for awhile.
Though she is tired, she has her own trials
She's patient, she's - The Pastor's Wife
Her life, her time, is not her own
There's always a need, they go on and on
With a knock at the door, or a ringing phone.
That's the life of - The Pastor's Wife
Her husband she shares with a whole congregation
She humbly accepts his intense dedication.
In loneliness she kneels to see consolation
God Bless - The Pastor's Wife
She will someday reach the end of this race
As she meets her Master face to face
Surely our God has a Special Place
In Heaven for - The Pastor's Wife!

Pastor's wives often minister through and because of their own painful circumstances...that's what makes them so compassionate and understanding. This pastors wife poem reminds us of this fact and calls us to respond with prayer.
When my heart is hurting,
My strength is overspent,
My body aches from weariness,
A friend from the Lord, is sent.
She is willing to listen,
To say an encouraging word,
Like the Lord sent an angel with
A voice sweet and gentle, I heard.
She is not without her pain,
For she has trials of her own,
But her concern for others
Is what is usually shown.
It is for this friend now,
That I would like to say
A fervent gentle prayer
And so for her now, I pray.
Lord bless this caring person,
May joy and peace for her abound,
For she shows me courage
And in her, new strength, I've found.

There's something special about the smile of a pastors wife. It brightens our day and says, "I understand." This pastors wife poem is a way to tell her, "Thank you," for her smile.
The world was turning upside down
And everything seemed to go wrong.
Then I saw a beautiful smile
On your face when you came along.
My day was cloudy with troubles and woes,
I couldn't seem to get into gear,
Then suddenly before me there you were
And a ray of sunshine seemed to appear.
When you walk into my day
And bring your smile with a glowing face,
The clouds of despair soon disappear
And rays of sunshine take their place.
A smile from heaven it seems to me,
A gift from God to bring me through,
A way of making the day seem brighter
You are my ray of sunshine, a gift from you.

Many people have the privilege of calling their pastor's wife, "friend." This pastors wife poem speaks of that friendship.
A forever friend is one who can cry with me in my
sadness, yet make me laugh at my woes. She can laugh
with me in my joy and be happy because of my rewards.
A forever friend sees my faults but does not hold them
against me. When I have had a bad day and am a little
cross, my forever friend still loves me and tries
to share some of the burden.
A forever friendship is a sustaining power through
every trial, every storm and every hurt but most of all
a forever friend is one who loves without measure,
who gives without expecting a return
and who serves with joy.

This pastors wife poem also speaks of the friendship many women share with their pastor's wife.
A friend is worth more than gold,
But it cannot be told
Just how much they can mean to us.
To be without them is quite unjust.
The things that can be shared,
Nothing has been compared.
We laugh together and cry together
And ask not why or whether
It is the thing we should do,
But there is one thing I wish I knew;
Why there is so much hate in this world of woe
When there are good friends like you to know.
by Judy Crowe
In my experience, a church is usually ready for their pastor to resign long before they are prepared to see their pastor's wife leave! This pastors wife poem might help you show your appreciation to a previous pastor's wife.
For reasons we may never understand
Our Lord sends friends, but for a season.
Reminders of the times we have shared
And memories of days when love gave reason.
So many things I wanted to say to you,
Even when I could talk with ease
And words could flow, much was left unsaid.
Surely, our Lord knows best and will give us peace.
Our friendship has meant so much to me but,
Now time moves on and faintly leaves its trail
And who's to say that our paths won't cross over the years,
But one thing I know for sure, that is God's love will never fail.
