Poem of the Week

In honor of a VERY good friend of mine, Sarah Simpson (DeGroot now, PTL!) She just recently married Bryce DeGroot (this past weekend.) May the Lord bless them as a couple and grow them together in grace and love for each other and Himself!

The Bride

Innocent and beautiful is the young and blushing bride

The valiant man she calls her groom stands beaming at her side.~

Yonder on you see a man who gave away her hand-

A father who's watched over her until she joined this man.~

A figure so pretty beside him, full of virtue, love, and grace-

She is the happy little mother with tears of joy rolling down her face.~

Young men stand close by also with brotherly pride and love,

Knowing it is their sister's beauty that everyone speaks of.~

Her younger sisters look to her and dream of their big day,

When their father will once again give his daughter's hand away.~

Family and friends give their kind works of congratulation,

And their thanks for inviting them to this memorable celebration.~

The bride slips away from the happy crowd to speak with another Guest,

One who she is the most glad to have near and who she knows the best.~

It is her Savior, her Father, and Lord who is watching over this day,

And she can trust He will always be there for her, come what may.~

She thanks Him for His greatness; His grace to her in life.

She's grown from child into woman and now into someone's wife.~

Stand with her, Thou the God of all, be ever at her side.

Keep in Your merciful, kind hands this young and blushing bride!~
