Psalter manuscript

Ephesians 5:22-33 > Holy Matrimony


O sister are you in subjection to Christ?
If so your husband is your master;
Give to him cheerfully the strength of your life
Make him your prophet, priest and pastor.

Dear brother are you ruling cruelly your wife?
You are her happiness to die for;
Let not your lips for her be seasoned with strife,
But rather tender kisses render.

From Eden’s garden holy matrimony
Was heaven’s template for eternity!

The risen Christ is now preparing His bride
His wedding day she’ll soon be sharing.
Wherefore in loving her He crucified pride –
An exhibition of true caring!
