To Be Loved

Adam slept
For a wife he kept,
Bone of his bones,
And became one flesh.

Jesus died
For a bride at His side,
Blood of His blood,
And became one spirit.

More than made to be saved
More than flesh is craved,
A divine sign from above:
We were made to be loved.

Genesis 2:21-23, Ephesians 5:22-33, and
The Normal Christian Life, pgs. 208-214
