Sanctorum Communio

Thank you Lord for letting me see

A vision of your Bride — unchained and free!

Shackled for so long and caged up by men

Her beauty was veiled and the world was her friend.

Betrothed to a God who prepares her a home

Though she doesn’t see Him, she is never alone.

Empowered by the Spirit to keep herself pure

By the hope of His coming and by faith she’ll endure.

The devil and demons with the power of hell

Try to destroy her, but will not prevail!

The Bridegroom is coming in the clouds to see

The wife of God, the church, she will be.

So let us now pray for community, dear saints

The day is almost over, let not your hearts be faint.

The Son is victorious and the marriage is near

Stand firm dear saints, there is nothing to fear.

Thank you Lord for letting me see

A vision of your Bride — unchained and free!

open armsNote: This little poem “Sanctorum Communio” (Community of the Saints) was written in my personal journal of prayers and meditations on February 4, 2007. It represents for me a song of victory in my own personal exodus from institutionalized Christianity.

    Very nice David. Like a love letter to a bridegroom, from one who has seen and tasted the passion of the lover.
    Inspires me!

    Great poem, brother. I’ve been incredibly busy with work, but I’d love to catch up with you sometime. Maybe we could talk on the phone if you have some spare time. It’d be cool to share our stories and what God has been up to in our lives.

    Love the site!
