One with Jesus, loved and cherished

One with Jesus, loved and cherished,
chosen as his holy bride;
all our sins in him have perished;
for his church the Saviour died;
gave himself to make her holy,
washed with water through the word,
to present her in his glory,
pure and blameless like her Lord.

2. As his body we have union
with our Saviour’s risen life;
joined in intimate communion,
two made one-like man and wife-
fulness of his Spirit giving;
all his word to guide our way;
strength for battle, power for living,
grace to keep us night and day.

3. See the radiant bride of heaven,
dressed in glory not her own;
sadness banished, sins forgiven,
knowing fully, fully known;
there revealed the gospel mystery;
all the church in Christ made one,
at the end of human history
in the kingdom of the Son.
