And That to Life

He died
     for His bride.
He gave His life
     for His wife.
But before,
     He so loved
          His only beloved
               ...even to death.

Can any other groom
     lay claim to as much?
Should any other husband
     do no less?

As we are His beloved,
     His bride,
          His wife,
To our own we are
     to have died,
          ...and that to life.
