ARISE....My Beloved

Posted Nov 03, 2012 by Bobbie Beck in General



(based on Song of Songs & Isaiah 54)

O, My dove, in the cleft of the rock
In the secret place
Let me hear your voice
Let me see your face
For Your face is lovely
And your voice is sweet
The voice of my beloved!
Behold, He comes!
The fairest of ten thousand
His banner over me is love
I am my beloved's, He is mine
You have ravished my heart,
My sister, my spouse
You have ravished my heart
With one look of your eyes
You are all fair, my love
There is no spot in you
A garden enclosed, my sister, my spouse
A spring shut up, a fountain sealed
A well of living waters
O you, who were afflicted,
Tossed with tempest, and not comforted,
Behold I will lay your stones
with colorful gems, and lay your foundations
with sapphires.
I will make your pinnacles of rubies,
Your gates of crystal
and all your walls of precious stones.
I will give you beauty for ashes
And the oil of joy for mourning
I will clothe you with garments of salvation
And garments of praise
And cover you with a robe of righteousness.
Look with me from the tops of the mountains,
Arise, my love, my fair one,
Arise, my love and come away...
Come away with me
Come away with me
Come away with me, my beloved
Your maker is your husband
The Lord of Hosts is His name
Although you were forsaken
You'll not be ashamed
You shall run and not grow weary
You shall walk and not faint
For those who wait upon the Lord
Shall renew their strength
So Arise, Arise on eagles' wings
Arise, Arise my love and sing
I will carry you
