THE WARRIOR BRIDE
“ Let us be glad and rejoice
and give Him glory,
marriage of the Lamb has come,
and His [Bride] has made herself ready."
Do you sense a Night time approaching,
wherein pandemonium rules the hour,
With Anti-God forces encroaching
As the hearts of men turn sour?
Whether in chambers of the mind
—Or our national Congress;
As “good intentions” all seem in vain;
—And yet it is only for a moment,
That such Evil will appear to reign…
For God’s Spirit is also rising
With a new healing within His wings;
As His champions will soon, like little David
Fell many a Goliath, with naught “but a sling”!
No, not with their long rifles
Or ‘ guns now shining bright;
Nor with a carnal knowledge
Of this old world within our minds:
But only by His Holy Spirit
Must His Beloved her fears assuage,
As fresh, from her secret prayer closet;
—The enemies of Light, are engaged!
Yes, God’s Spirit is yet arising
Soaring high over earth’s tribulation:
His heart, being touched by His children;
As with loud trumpet blast, and a grand jubilation
He will return to establish His Kingdom;
Within that glad, and glorious Day
When we shall have united with Him
High above earth and Armageddon;
As His holy Bride,
And restore earth and Eden.
. . . And so shall we ever be with the Lord.
. -- 1 Thessalonians 4:17
