Watch Rosh Hashanah Revival

The Bridegroom-King

1 Listen, my dearest darling,

you are so beautiful—you are beauty itself to me!

Your eyes are

like gentle doves behind your veil.

What devotion I see each time I gaze upon you.

You are like a sacrifice ready to be offered.

2 When I look at you,

I see how you have taken my fruit and tasted my word.

Your life has become clean and pure,

like a lamb washed and newly shorn.

You now show grace and balance with truth on display.

3 Your lips are as lovely as Rahab’s scarlet ribbon,

speaking mercy, speaking grace.

The words of your mouth are as refreshing as an oasis.

What pleasure you bring to me!

I see your blushing cheeks

opened like the halves of a pomegranate,

showing through your veil of tender meekness.

4 When I look at you,

I see your inner strength, so stately and strong.

You are as secure as David’s fortress.

Your virtues and grace cause a thousand famous soldiers

to surrender to your beauty.

5 Your pure faith and love rest over your heart

as you nurture those who are yet infants.


The Shulamite

6 I’ve made up my mind.

Until the darkness disappears and the dawn has fully come,

in spite of shadows and fears,

I will go to the mountaintop with you—

the mountain of suffering love

and the hill of burning incense.

Yes, I will be your bride.

(Songs 6:1-6)
