1
JESUS, our Lord, Thou lovest to be near
To loving hearts who find Thyself so dear -
The precious fruit of purpose, deep, divine,
Secured and held for this great love of Thine.
2
Thy bride alone, Thy cherished counterpart,
Can satisfy the longings of Thy heart;
"Thou art all fair, my love," we hear Thee say,
"Arise, my love, my fair one - come away!"
3
Freely we yield ourselves to Thy great love,
Responding gladly, as afresh we prove
That Thou the Bridegroom art, who hast the bride
In Thine embrace - Thine own heart satisfied.

Mrs. S.A. Haughton
