HYMN 69 Christ appearing to his church, and seeking her company. SS 2:8-13.

Christ appearing to his church, and seeking her company. SS 2:8-13.

The voice of my Beloved sounds

Over the rocks and rising grounds;

O'er hills of guilt and seas of grief

He leaps, he flies to my relief.

Now through the veil of flesh I see

With eyes of love he looks at me;

Now in the gospel's clearest glass

He shows the beauties of his face.

Gently he draws my heart along,

Both with his beauties and his tongue;

|Rise,| saith my Lord, |make haste away,

No mortal joys are worth thy stay.

|The Jewish wintry state is gone,

The mists are fled, the spring comes on;

The sacred turtle-dove we hear

Proclaim the new, the joyful year.

|Th' immortal vine of heav'nly root

Blossoms, and buds, and gives her fruit:|

Lo! we are come to taste the wine;

Our souls rejoice, and bless the vine.

And when we hear our Jesus say,

|Rise up, my love, make haste away!|

Our hearts would fain outfly the wind,

And leave all earthly loves behind.
