Beauty of the Bride

I’ve got a river of life flowing within me;
It makes the lame to walk and the blind to see.
It opens prison doors, sets the captives free.
I’ve got a river of life flowing within me.

Spring up, O well, within my spirit!
Rise up and tell, so all can hear it!
Spring up, O well, so I experience
That life abundantly.

今天聚会最后所唱的诗歌。这首诗歌把整个会众带到了一种无法用言语表达的喜乐里面。我不记得什么时候曾经历过一个聚会被一首喜乐的诗歌提到了如此属天的地步。(很可能我对喜乐的诗歌有偏见。)

不仅仅是被神的爱感动,而是教会与主同在天上。

I’ve got a river of life flowing within me;
It started gushing up when God set me free.
That I keep the flow is my only plea.
I’ve got a river of life springing within me.

Spring up, O well, within my spirit!
Rise up and tell, so all can hear it!
Spring up, O well, so I experience
That life abundantly.

Once I call His name there’s a flow within;
It turns me from my day, makes Him Lord again.
As my spirit burns, Satan cannot win.
Calling, “Oh Lord Jesus,” keeps the flow within.

Spring up, O well, within my spirit!
Rise up and tell, so all can hear it!
Spring up, O well, so I experience
That life abundantly.

None of the recordings I found on the web could come near how the song was rendered by brothers and sisters this past Sunday.

English-speaking brothers and sisters here have a rich spiritual heritage.

Not just the inheritance in Christ in eternity, but also a historical and experiential heritage that is a peculiar treasure of the people of the Lord.

An embattled church, having faced and still facing so much devastating attack from enemy’s headquarters, still manifests that unique heavenly aspect which most congregations lack. This is the true beauty of the bride in the eyes of the Lord.

If the Lord thinks it is worth it, I must agree with Him.
