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!
