As God’s provision,  the true Jehovah-jireh,
No angel’s voice  could interrupt His dying,
No mitigation  could ease His sacrificing:
He had to bear  God’s judgment in its direness
And enter death  to conquer it entirely.
So God secured for Him,  the greater Isaac,
A heavenly bride  appropriately highborn,
Agile for Him  for so God was desirous,
Led by the Spirit  and consequently lively.
Christ has a Bride,  companion and admirer
In the broad place  won safely from man’s violence
Where constantly  she loves and magnifies Him.
