Bride of Christ
Where have you gone, My bride?
Whose foreign arms have you sought?
Have I not been faithful?
Did I not incline My ear towards you?
Before you were ready to be called Mine
I knew you.
I knew the trials you would face
And the temptations of the world.
Therefore, I gave you My Word.
Even My Spirit I placed within you
To lead you back to Me,
Your King, Your Savior.
Yet with all of My blessings,
You have forsaken Me for another;
For one who is not worthy,
Who leads you down the wide path of destruction.
Wake up from your slumber!
See where you are and choose.
Call upon Me, and I will restore you.
Tarry, and you will be lost.
Trim your wicks.
Get the oil ready.
Return to Me as a spotless bride
And remain faithful until I come.
