1. The church as the bride is a matter of love,
God's inner substance, so sweet;
As we enjoy God in His presence divine,
Our first love and best love we keep.
Nothing but love, poured from above
Can make us overcomers today,
Love strong as death, 'til our least breath,
Come quickly, Lord Jesus, we pray.
2. O come, my Belov'd, and let us go forth,
Enjoying a fresh bridal love;
When working together, a fragrance breaks forth,
The fragrance of mutual love.
3. To just love the Lord is to give Him first place,
To live Him and treasure His heart,
Appreciate Him, open fully to Him,
Until we become His counterpart.
4. Lord, grant us a strong and affectionate love,
A burning and flaming hot love;
Our last testimony, through rapturous praise,
Is "Loving You, Lord, was enough!"
