Thou hast indeed made manifest
Thy glory, welcome Bridal Guest,
Thou art Messiah, we believe;
Our adoration, Lord, receive.
Be Thou our constant Guest, we pray,
O Friend of sinners, come to stay.
Our every need do Thou supply,
Till we become Thy guests on high.
O heavenly Bridegroom, haste, we pray,
That long expected wedding day
When trumpets sound, to call us home:
The bridal of the Lamb hath come.
