The voice of my Beloved

1
The voice of my Beloved,
Behold, He quickly comes;
He leaps upon the mountains,
And o'er the hills He runs.
The signs of His appearing
Are seen on every side;
The Bridegroom soon is coming
To claim His loving Bride.
2
How real that He is coming—
Come quickly, Lord, again!
We watch for His appearing,
His precious Word amen.
Oh, don't delay His coming,
Pray without ceasing, pray;
He's eagerly awaiting
That coming wedding day.
3
He longs to hear our voices,
He longs to see our face—
Our voices filled with sweetness,
Our countenance with grace.
"Arise, My love, My fair one,
We long to hear Him say.
The voice of our Beloved—
"Arise and come away!"
4
The winter rain is over,
The flowers appear on earth;
The rising sun of Jesus
Fills all our hearts with mirth.
It is the time of singing,
The turtle dove is heard;
For our Beloved's coming
The sweetest chords are stirred.
5
Oh, let us take the foxes
That spoil the blooming vine;
Our vineyards are in blossom,
And all, Beloved, is Thine.
The day is quickly dawning,
The shadows flee away;
Upon the mount of spices
Our Lord may come today.

“He longs to hear our voices,

He longs to see our face—

Our voices filled with sweetness,

Our countenance with grace.

“Arise, My love, My fair one,

We long to hear Him say.

The voice of our Beloved—

“Arise and come away! ”

“Love is related to our appreciation of Christ.... The hearing of faith awakens our loving appreciation, and the more we love the Lord, the more faith operates to bring us into the riches, the profit, of the all-inclusive Spirit. ”

(Gal. 5:6, footnote 3, RcV)

Remembering that He longs for us, awakens my loving appreciation of Him. Apart from Him we are just sinners, but He died for our sins so we may receive grace. Oh, what love He has for us. Amen
