Jesus is our lovely Bridegroom

1
Jesus is our lovely Bridegroom,
And our Bridegroom is with us!
Now our praying’s turned to praising
In His Presence glorious.
  O our Bridegroom! O our Bridegroom!
Lord, Thou art our Bridegroom sweet!
How we treasure Thy dear presence—
  O what bliss and joy complete!
2
We are fellows of the Bridegroom
And our fasting days have ceased.
With the Bridegroom in His chamber,
Joyfully we keep the feast.
3
We as virgins may enjoy Him,
Virgins simple, single, chaste.
Going forth to meet the Bridegroom,
Out from all the world we haste.
4
We are guests by God invited
To His Son’s great wedding feast.
Brothers, sisters, hallelujah,
From religion we’re released!
5
Now rejoice with joy excelling,
Joy of joys, all else beside—
Not just fellows, guests, or virgins,
Hallelujah, we’re the Bride!
  Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Lord, Thou art our Bridegroom sweet!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
  O what bliss and joy complete!
