New Hymn at CWM: Jehovah’s Bride

Jehovah’s Bride is the latest hymn from ChurchWorksMedia.com—an Anderson/Habegger collaboration that celebrates the church’s union to the Lord Jesus Christ. It was written as a wedding gift for Jared Miller and Holly Barnett, to be wed on August 6, 2011 at Tri-County Bible Church in Madison, Ohio. They specifically requested a grand and timeless hymn that rejoices in divine love for the church, not a piece focusing directly on the husband and wife. Jehovah’s Bride is the result. We hope it will be a useful piece for the entire church (regardless of age, gender, or marital status) for all times (not just special occasions).

An SATB arrangement of Jehovah’s Bride has been prepared by James Koerts. Lord willing, it will be available for purchase soon.

Congratulations, Jared and Holly! :)

We are His, Jehovah’s bride!
We are one with Heaven’s King.
Lifted to the Savior’s side,
With elation let us sing.
Who are we to wed the Lord—
To be held in His embrace?
Drawn by love’s descending cord,
We are His, a bride of grace.
We are His, a bride of grace.

We are His, a cherished bride,
Loved at such a lavish price—
Heaven’s justice satisfied,
Paid by Heaven’s sacrifice.
Who are we, to be adored
By the Lamb who took our place?
Held by love’s almighty cord,
We are His, a bride of grace.
We are His, a bride of grace.

We are His, a faithful bride,
And our hearts within us burn.
“Come Lord Jesus,” we have sighed;
For our Groom alone we yearn.
How we long for our reward—
To behold His lovely face.
Safe in love’s eternal cord,
We are His, a bride of grace.
We are His, a bride of grace.
