The Song

His eyes  twinkle,
His smile is wide
"Well done! Beloved",
The Song is joyful.

Zephaniah 3:17
The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.

The loved one
Smiles back,
Delight draws her near,
She hears The Song.

Psalm 16:3
But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

Aware that He watches,
She works with confidence,
The Song gives her strength.
She whistles along.

Psalm 65:8
The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.

Dark thunder heads roil,
She seeks His shelter,
Strains to hear The Song
Of strength, behind the static.

Psalm 28:7
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.

Other songs allure her,
She embraces them; The Song slips away
But stands guard, ready to rescue
When she awakes from the siren’s stupor.

James 4:4 & 5
…Don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us?

Loss wrenches her away from
His right hand of pleasure,
The Song fades,
Grief is deafening.

Angry, The Song betrays,
She spits away the promises,
Maybe in another world,
But not Here in the hurt, the sorrow.

What she remembers of His Song,
Haunts her, longing is stirred,
Perhaps He did mean forever,
Not just later, but now, Here.

She asks to hear it again,
Even a Hum would be enough,
She craves His presence,
Does He hear her desire?

Isaiah 51:3
The Lord will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing.

The Lover hastens to her,
His arms gently embrace,
The Song is still on his lips,
She is satisfied earlier than imagined.

Psalm 90:14
O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

The Words of The Song,
Tell of his joy in her,
Pledges his heart to wed,
Unspeakable secrets make her blush.

1 Peter 1:8
Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

The Lover still sings,
Will always sing,
She hears Him, Spirit to spirit,
One day Face to face.

In that day she will know the Words,
Sing The Song,
Along with the Choir,
The Bride with the Bridegroom.

Revelation 19:6 & 7
Then I heard the sound of massed choirs, the sound of a mighty cataract, the sound of strong thunder:
Hallelujah! The Master reigns,
    our God, the Sovereign-Strong!
Let us celebrate, let us rejoice,
    let us give him the glory!
The Marriage of the Lamb has come;
    his Wife has made herself ready.
