My Bride has not arrived!


From my window I lift up my eyes to the hills, where will my bride come from? My Bride comes from God, the Maker of heaven and earth. I pray that He does not let her foot slip when she is coming.
Only that my bride has not arrived to me!

I know He has already created her wonderfully and fearfully. With enough beauty to melt my heart and the breasts to satisfy me. I have a lot of love to give her.
Only that my bride has not arrived to me!

He who watches over her should neither slumber nor sleep. He will provide shade for the sun not to harm her by day, neither the moon by night. Watching over her coming and going both now and in future.
Only that my bride has not arrived to me!

Majestic will she be when she arrives. Flower girls will throw flower petals ahead of her. Expectantly I will wait for her hand from her father. And wait for her to say, Yes I do! Then I kiss her.
Only that my bride has not arrived to me!
