Arise, My Love, Arise!
It is time. It is Time!
Step from the folds of earthen shade,
and enter Paradise sublime!
Arise, My Love, Arise!

Awake, Dear One, Awake!
Let fall your fleshly robe,
that holds you in Timeís weak embrace.
Enter the Light of Heavenís Face.
Awake, Dear One, Awake!

No longer tarry here,
nor cling to things now past.
Run eagerly into My Arms
as Angels soothe with Heavenís charms.
Be free of pain at last!

Arise, Awake and Sing
as in My Heart you Live!
Dance in the Presence of your King!
My open Arms are offering
the Home I now shall give.

Oh, blessed Precious One,
you are my Dearest Love.
No longer must you darkly see
through glass of Timeís dim misty lea.
Join Me in Heaven above!

Ring out Celestial Bells!
All Angels lift your Wings!
Welcome the Masterís Holy Bride
who reigns in Glory at His side,
the Chosen of the King!


"Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures forevermore."
Psalms 16:11 KJV

I like the format - it is different and eye catching! I liked the rhyme scheme - it keopt mu attention and you selected just the right words. I liked the message too.

Yep - I guess I liked it!

Oh, for JOY! I hear a pipe organ with all the stops out. Then an orchestra, tympani, accompanying a thousand glorious voices! This could be a classic hymn lyric, and I have a feeling we'll all be singing it up there one day! A winner.

This is so beautiful - I want to sing it!

Your rhyme scheme changed after the 1st verse. But that's the only criticism I can find (and I really had to look for it!) Wonderful, wonderful work!
