THE GROOM AWAITS


Before this world can end her days
Before the next can start
Her children need to end their ways
And free her troubled heart

Doubt is the fruit of Satan’s weed
And lies his flower bed
But faith restored by Heaven’s Seed
Can raise the walking dead

The virtue gained by Jesus’ bride
Will righteousness pursue
And through The Flame that burns inside
Will stand forever true

True love’s the crown of Jesus queen
Bestowed with grace above
By faith she hopes of that unseen
Through Christ’s unfailing love

The Christ that died that she might live
The Christ eternal Lord
Through faith in Him and what He’ll give
True life may be restored

True love’s like pearls festooned in gold
Hope is a precious jewel
While faith not bought nor ever sold
Can end the devil’s rule

The Groom Himself attends her hair
Washing in Heaven’s wine
With golden comb and loving care
With fragrant oils divine

With crown of glory made perfect
With ring and shroud aglow
God’s Righteousness and His elect
Will leave the world below

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
