LORD JESUS, COME
Lord Jesus, come, and take Thy faithful wife
To be with Thee as Thy resplendent bride:
She is secured at an amazing price
And cherished by the vigour of love’s might
Through and despite the ravages of time.
None but Thy church can be for Thee Thy like
Nor can approach so close to the divine.
What lasting joy her presence will incite
As close to Thee where nothing can divide
And she will have Thee as her paradise;
Take to Thyself this finest paradigm
Of all Thy love acquired for its delight!
