The following is a poem made by splicing Song of Songs 2:10-13, John 5:25-26, and John 11:25.

***

My lover spoke and said to me,

“I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come

when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God

and those who hear will live.

Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.

See!  The winter is past; the rains are over and gone.

For as the Father has life in himself,

so he has granted the Son to have life in himself.

Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come,

the cooing of doves is heard in our land.

The fig tree forms its early fruit;

the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.

 

I am the resurrection and the life.

He who believes in me will live.

Arise, come my darling;

my beautiful one, come with me.”
