In the Clefts of the Rock

1
In the clefts of the rock
I delight to be.
In the covert of the precipice
You would find me.
Lord, conform me now,
Daily to Your death.
Let me see Your countenance,
I am a dove,
In the clefts of the rock.

My Beloved responds:
Rise up my love,
My beauty and come away;
The rain is gone.
The winter is past,
The time of singing has come.
Rise up and come away,
You are my dove,
In the clefts of the rock.
3
It's just so difficult,
In these clefts to remain.
Naught but Your resurrection power
Could me sustain.
Now to Your call I respond,
From introspection to come.
Now and always, my Beloved,
I'd be Your dove,
In the clefts of the Rock.

It’s just so difficult,

In these clefts to remain.

Naught but Your resurrection power

Could me sustain.

Lord, conform me now,

Daily to Your death.

Let me see Your countenance,

I am a dove,

In the clefts of the rock.

When the dove needed shelter for herself, she sought out the security of a cave or a cavern (Jer. 48:28). Here in the Song of Solomon, the dove matches and belongs to the unchanging rock that has been opened by cutting. May I live the dove life concealed in the Rock that has been opened through His wounds. In such a delightful union the bride is being adorned and made ready for her husband!
