Frances Matney Woodard (1922 – 1991) was born in Huntington, Texas the eldest daughter of a Methodist minister. After working for the US Military during World War 2, she attended and graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. After marrying, she settled in Longview, Texas where she was very active as a Sunday school teacher, youth & children’s choir director, church secretary, choir member, songwriter, and soloist at her Church and throughout East Texas.

She was a Spirit-filled believer who loved the Lord. She was a prolific writer who dedicated her last years in this world to writing songs and poetry, many that were never distributed or published outside the family. I am very proud to share some of her writing with the world. I pray that it blesses you. — Harrison Woodard



By Frances Matney Woodard

(1922 – 1991)


Love the Father

And love the Son

Then you will know how to love everyone


Love your neighbor

Love your friend

Love that person who may have sinned


Love is the one thing that will open the doors

Love is the power to take you to other shores


So, now all you do, and all you say

Your wishes and all your way

Must be guided by this love


If you feel you cannot – don’t despair

Just ask God to fill you with His love to share

You’ll feel it so completely

That you’ll forget every care

And have no desire except to give it everywhere.
