The Bride proclaims with joy: “Behold He cometh!”
Under His shadow her gracefulness will flourish
Helped by His sweetness from which she will be nourished.
She is His helpmate in this requiring nothing
But what the Spirit in grace has wisely furnished;
He is the Bridegroom and He is the Beloved.
Jesus is more than one who carries burdens
But One she knows as, in each aspect, worthy.
She knows His face, that it is white and ruddy;
She knows His voice, affectionately urgent;
She knows His heart since He revealed its wonders:
And she acclaims Him as “Altogether lovely!”
