O Royal Bride, give heed,
And to my words attend;
For Christ the King forsake the world.
And ev'ry former friend.

Verse 2
Thy beauty and thy grace
Shall then delight the King;
He only is thy rightful Lord,
To Him thy worship bring.

To thee, since thou art His,
Great honor shall be shown;
The rich shall bring their gifts to thee,
Thy glory they shall own.

Verse 4
Enthroned in royal state,
All glorious thou shalt dwell,
With garments fair, inwrought with gold,
The Church He loveth well.

Verse 5
And they that honor thee
Shall in thy train attend;
And to the palace of the King.
Shall joyfully ascend.

Verse 6
O King of royal race,
Thy sons of heavenly birth
Thou wilt endow with kingly gifts
As princes in the earth.

Verse 7
Thy Name shall be proclaimed
Through all succeeding days,
And all the nations of the earth
Shall give Thee endless praise.
