Behold He runs towards His enstranged bethrothed!
With fire in His eyes He burns towards me
Oh how I melt under the heat of His approach!
Oh the pain of red burning coal upon the sin coated foreskin of my heart!
And He draws nearer and nearer
This love is jealous
Yea His name is jealous
This love has given all
He is coming to take me all
His winnowing fork is in His hands
To clear His threshing floor
To gather the wheat into His barn
But He will burn up the chaff
With unquenchable fire
Love flame! Passion unstoppable!
Many waters cannot quench it
Neither can the floods drown it
Come near O Burning One!
Come burn away all chaff
Come inflict the love pain
Yea I may weep for a night
But I will awake with you in the morning light
Though I sorrow in mourning for a season
And though the look in Your beautiful eyes
Hurt my already raped and ravaged soul
Yet will I not turn away my gaze from You
I will not cease to behold You
Whose eyes have enravished my heart
Though Your eyes hurt, yet will I look
I will cleave to Him whom my soul desires
And keep a steady gaze on His blessed countenance
Until all that hurts and pains and offends is burnt away
Then I will know Him as He knows me
Then I shall be free from all encumbering weights
That misinterprete the sweetness of pure divine Love
As pain to my soul
Then I shall be made one with that flame,
One with that beautiful Man
Whom the virgins do love
I shall burn, engulfed with passion for Him alone
My Lord, my King, my Groom
An eternal burning! Burning yet not consumed!
Incense! Pleasures! Sweetness!
A soul virgin! A bride ready!
A heart ablaze! Purified, decked, adorned as wife
Baked tender under the fiery eyes of the Groom
Prepared to sup and wine with Him
In the Secret Place of the Most High. Amen
