  The Master Is Come, And Calleth For Thee  

 

Who calleth?--Thy Father calleth,
    Run, O Daughter, to wait on Him:
He Who chasteneth but for a season
    Trims thy lamp that it burn not dim.

Who calleth?--Thy Master calleth,
    Sit, Disciple, and learn of Him:
He Who teacheth wisdom of Angels
    Makes thee wise as the Cherubim,

Who calleth?--Thy Monarch calleth,
    Rise, O Subject, and follow Him:
He is stronger than Death or Devil,
    Fear not thou if the foe be grim.

Who calleth?--Thy Lord God calleth.
    Fall, O Creature, adoring Him:
He is jealous, thy God Almighty,
    Count not dear to thee life or limb.

Who calleth?--Thy Bridegroom calleth,
    Soar, O Bride, with the Seraphim:
He Who loves thee as no man loveth,
    Bids thee give up thy heart to Him.

       - Christina G. Rossetti
