THE CHURCH'S ESPOUSALS




The day, the nuptial day is come,
When Christ from far conducts his bride,
In sumptuous state he brings her home,
And fondly seats her by his side.


In her fair form the Saviour spies
Those beauties which himself bestowed,
And she with holy transport flies
To the embraces of her God.


There a rich diadem of gold,
On her distinguished head she wears;
New glories to her view unfold,
And all the bliss of heaven she shares.


Surrounding seraphs join to admire
Her beauteous form and heavenly dress,
Themselves ne’er wore such rich attire,
Not such a robe of righteousness!
