125. The Church the Bride of Christ

1 O Royal Bride give heed,
And to my words attend;
For Christ the King forsake the world
And ev'ry former friend.

2 Thy beauty and thy grace
Shall then delight the King;
He only is the rightful Lord,
To Him thy worship bring.

3 To thee, since thou art His,
Great honor shall be shown;
The rich shall bring their gifts to thee
Thy glory they shall own.

4 Enthroned in royal state,
All glorious thou shalt dwell,
With garments fair, in-wrought with gold,
The Church He loveth well.

5 And they that honor thee
Shall in thy train attend;
And to the palace of the King
Shall joyfully ascend.

6 O King of royal race,
Thy sons of heavenly birth
Thou wilt endow with kingly gifts
As princes in the earth.

7 Thy name shall be proclaimed
Through all succeeding days,
And all the nations of the earth
Shall give Thee endless praise.
