Lovers of Christ

1
Lovers of Christ in His ascension—
Enjoy the riches of His life.
She becomes His private garden
With its fountain, fruit, and spice.
Christ is hers and she is Christ's dear love.
2
She is as beautiful as Tirzah
As lovely as Jerusalem.
Through her living in Christ's ascension
Her dear heart is now His home.
She's become the sanctuary of God.
3
Who is this woman I am seeing?
Shining forth as the moon and sun.
She is absolutely heavenly,
From the old creation free;
Overcoming all to live within the veil.
4
An army terrible with banners
Christ's lovers overcome to be.
Those attracted by His beauty,
Fully trusting in His power.
Her romance is now the dances of two camps.
5
The Shulamite, His duplication,
His counterpart has now become.
She's the same in life and nature,
His expression to the full;
Consummated as the New Jerusalem.

I needed some encouragement tonight and found myself trying to find my wedding hymn. I got married 12 years ago and the young people sang this hymn as I walked toward my husband. I thought I would be encouraged by the sweetness of this hymn, and I was..... BUT what encouraged me most was reading all the comments from all my brothers and sisters who are enjoying this hymn around the world... Nigeria, Philipines, Fiji, etc.

I am so strengthened by you all. You remind me that our enjoyment of Christ is not just for ourselves, but is also for the strengthening and building of the Body of Christ. Our enjoyment is a sweet testimony of our love for Him. May we all be encouraged to seek Him everyday, to seize every opportunity to love Him.

Amen, this song is so sweet! It refreshes my mind when every time I enjoy it. Saints, do you want to be the lovers of Christ? I really do. I experienced that the simple way to be the lover of Christ is to ENJOY HIM. The more I enjoy Him, the more I will be constituted with His life. If everyone would enjoy the Lord and be filled with His life to the uttermost, Christ will gain His counterpart, who is His beloved Bride. What miracle! What mystery! That God and man should blended be.The Triune God, tripartite man. A loving pair eternally. As man yet God they coinhere. A mutual dwelling place to be.

Unless we personally love the Lord there is no guarantee that we will remain in the church. May the Lord have mercy on us that with His own love we will love Him back with our whole being, with our whole mind and with our whole strength.

I really love this song. It inspired me a lot every time I heard it.

Praise the Lord, saints that we are the chosen people of God. Amen!

The church is a group of the believers of Christ who love Him. They are the crazy lovers of Christ like in Eph. 5:25 says that the Lord gave Himself up for the church. And we members of the Body which is the church will be glorified when the day comes the church will be the most beautiful in the eyes of God. Hallelujah for this great mystery: Christ and the church as the one couple as one new man. O LORD WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!

"We are lovers of Christ in His ascension and now we can can enjoy all the riches of His life that was imparted into us". We need to love Him because in 1 Corinthians 16:22 Paul says that "if anyone does not love the Lord, let him be accursed! the Lord comes! AMEN.
