S.M.

"One spirit with the Lord";
 
Oh blessèd, wondrous word!
 
What heavenly light, what power divine,
 
Doth that sweet word afford!
1 Corinthians 6:17
2
"One spirit with the Lord";
 
Jesus, the glorified,
 
Esteems the church for which He bled,
 
His body and His bride.
Acts 3:13; Ephesians 5:25; Ephesians 5:30; Revelation 21:9

And though by storms assailed,
 
And though by trials pressed,
 
Himself our life, He bears us up
 
Right onward to the rest.
Matthew 14:24; 1 Peter 4:12; Colossians 3:4; Hebrews 4:9

There we shall drink the stream
 
Of endless bliss above:
 
There we shall know, without a cloud,
 
His full, unbounded love.
Revelation 21:6; 1 Corinthians 13:12
“But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” (1 Corinthians 6:17)
