A CROWN OF SONNETS VI
They are united in the Spirit's power
As the assembly, answering Christ's heart;
I love the assembly as it stands apart
To be for Him, a confident white flower;
To be for Him, resplendent in the shower
Of blessings that surround her; heaven's art
Has formed and strengthened: hades' gates can't start
To make Christ's grand assembly quake or cower!
Christ's love for the assembly is so great
He gave Himself for her: and who can speak
Of such great love for what He came to seek?
Conformed to Him as one built from His side,
John saw her in the aeon we await:
There she still shines as a resplendent bride.
