The Glory of the Bride

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 8/20/2018

The glory of the bride is found
In the love of her groom
Her face is glowing brightly
As she walks into the room
The purity of her gown
Is the prudence of his choice
And her veil is the image
Of his kind, protecting voice
A blush is sitting gracefully
Upon her smiling cheek
Accentuated sweetly
By her gracious spirit, meek
The groom is standing tall and firm
Yet gentle is his hand
As he pledges his covenant
In front of all the land
His promise of sweet faithfulness
To the end and from the start
Is a kiss upon her lips
And the seal of his own heart
The lifting of the veil melded
Both of them into one
The groom took her hand and her heart
And love that he had won
Together they walk down the isle
Singing so joyously
And so his name is now her own
Hers for eternity

C.H. Spurgeon - "God’s mercy is so great that you may sooner drain the sea of its water, or deprive the sun of its light, or make space too narrow, than diminish the great mercy of God. "

Thank you! Blessings to you

God uses the milestones as stepping stones to bring us closer to Him. We may not see it in the moment, but we can always look back and see the memorials of His love in the crumbles of our stumbling blocks.

Damaris, I loved these lines:
The purity of her gown
Is the prudence of his choice
And her veil is the image
Of his kind, protecting voice

Apart from your beautiful imagery, you also gave this poem a songlike, personal sway. :)

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper

Aww, thank you!

Aww, thank you!

I really like this

I really like this, Damaris! You've painted a wonderful picture of both the bride and the groom, and it seems in almost every stanza you've linked a detail about one to a detail about the other in a very thought-provoking way.

I think the first two lines function as the thesis for the whole poem:
The glory of the bride is found
In the love of her groom

It also underscores how marriage is a picture of God and His people, of Christ and His church: and how our glory is found in Christ and His love for us.

Oh, thank you!

I appreciate your comment so much. Thank you, James.
