Inspired by . . . the time of singing
May His word draw you, up and away into the bosom of His love.
Draw me away! We will run after you.
I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with a lovingkindness I have drawn you.
I drew them with gentle cords, with bands of love.
I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.
Behold, the Lamb of God!
As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
We love Him because He first loved us.
My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with tender grapes give a good smell. Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!”
