As a Bride Adorned

She approaches now in glory
Her King upon His throne
Bedecked with Jewels and honour
Provided by he King
Her heart pulsates within in her
Desires Him for her own
And at this very moment
Her Heart begins to sing.

Through the years of toil and struggle
And many a bitter day
She’s given all she ever had
And more that she’d obtained
To make herself more worthy
For this her wedding day
Yet now turmoil within her
Could undo all she’s gained.

This is the day she’s longed for
As year by year passed by
The day of her betrothal
To Christ the King of Kings
No light of sun is needed
To turn the seeking eye
For her beloved is the light
That brightens all these things.

And now this church triumphant
Touches the Saviour’s rod
(She is His one desire
Purchased on the cross)
Proving her acceptance
By Christ the Son of God
Knowing now and forever
She will not suffer loss.

While all around these witnesses
Stand to Cheer her on
Patriarchs, saints and prophets
All their witness give
Declaring now her great beauty
And how her light has shone
Drawing all who went before
To the great City of God.

Lovely poem with great allegorical descriptions. Very nice!

Very good imagery, and a unique rhyme scheme. I found the rhythm a little bit choppy; perhaps punctuation would help it to flow more easily.

A poem! You gave a good description of heaven and the church as a bride.

A lovely poem of service and witness.
One little thing, the last group did not rhyme the fourth lines.
Otherwise, I enjoyed this very much. Thanks for sharing.

I've always liked the image of the church as a "bride adorned". Beautiful poem.

Congratulations, William, on placing 9th in your level.

Imaginative and unique. Work out a few flow issues and this is really good.
