Verse 1

D                                                       E

Many nights upon your bed you’ve sought me while you’ve slumbered

G                                    D    A

You’ve sought me, but found me not

D                                            E

But Lo the nights far spent and soon the dawn is coming

G                                                 D       A

Behold I stand at your door and knock

 

Chorus

 

Dsus4      D                                       Csus2

Arise my love, my undefiled, oh my holy one

D                                                                              Csus2

For the winters gone, behold the time of the spring song has come

Gmajor                                                     D                   A

I’ve loosed the latch upon thy door, arise my love, come to me

 

Verse 2

 

Dsus4 D                                                  Csus2

It seems for an eternity, I’ve longed to have you by my side my love

D                                                                                          Csus2

But the day has come, behold your putting your wedding garments on

Gmajor                                                           D                  A

Arise come away with Me my love, come to Me, come to Me

 

Chorus

 

Dsus4      D                                       Csus2

Arise my love, my undefiled, oh my holy one

D                                                                              Csus2

For the winters gone behold the time of the spring song has come

Gmajor                                                     D                   A

I’ve loosed the latch upon thy door, arise my love, come to me

 

Verse 3

 

Dsus4      D                                            Csus2

Be brave my love, fear not the faces of the ones you’ll meet

D                                                                    Csus2

For I know thy works, behold I set before thee an open door

Gmajor                                                    D                   A

That I might show my love to world through you, through you

 

Chorus

 

Dsus4      D                                       Csus2

Arise my love, my undefiled oh my holy one

D                                                                              Csus2

For the winters gone, behold the time of the spring song has come

Gmajor                                                     D                   A

I’ve loosed the latch upon thy door, arise my love come to me
