We must consider God: He was not bored
when He created Man and Adam’s wife;
The Maker made His image. In fair Eve,
our King’s intent: the gift of holy life.
The two He joins, our lives God gently weaves:
Our souls, His saints; Himself our Sovereign Lord.
Love intertwined: the Church and Jesus Christ.
His Word dives our soul from spirit. Sword
of God now making what went wrong alright
through perfect grace. He clothes with more than leaves
and what was torn, in Christ is now restored.
The pains of ancient times, our Lord relieves.
Our Father gives the Spirit as our Seal,
and thus our Husband Jesus truly heals.
