A Song - The Bridegroom and the Virgins

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

a-song-the-bridegroom-and-the-virgins

Composer's Foreword

A story of a bachelor and virgins were shared in Matthew 25. God points out the need for consistency in believers daily affairs in the story so that believers would not miss out with their Master and Lord when he returns for them.

I hope believers globally will find this composed song beneficial to them.

Thank you.

Composed Song

Leader

A Bachelor went out to

To find a Wife even for himself

In his search for a wife

He finds ten virgins for himself

Chorus


Leader

He wooa each one of them

Professing his unflinching love for them

Indeed he shows them

Demonstrating his love for each one

Chorus


Leader

Their journeys of love

Was fun-filled every passing day

All the virgin ladies

Were subsumed in the love of the man

Chorus


Leader

Then something happened

The young man was called home by his Father

And his Father sends

Sends him to a very far land

Chorus


Leader

B'fore his departure

He gave each virgin special lamb

The lamb is a sign

Token of my love for each one

Chorus


Leader

I will soon return

For you the groom says to each one

Imploring each one of them

Not to allow the light to go out

Chorus


Leader

But the groom tarries

Tarries longer than expected

Soon all the virgins

They slumbered and they slept off

Chorus


Leader

When they don't expect

Even at the midnight hour

Security man cries out

"Behold the groom is on his way"

Chorus


Leader

All the virgins arose

Even out of their deep sleep

Then each one of them

Take their lambs and they trimmed it

Chorus


Leader

While lights of the wise

Kept on glowing and glowing

But lights of foolish virgins

Became dimmed and was going out

Chorus


Leader

The foolish virgins pleaded

With wise virgins to give 'em some of their oil

For behold our lights

Are now dimmed and are going out

Chorus


Leader

The wise ones replied

That oil they have is barely enough for them

And suggest to them

That they should go and buy for themselves

Chorus


Leader

While on their way to

Purchase new oil for themselves

Bridegroom arrives and

The wise enter wedding banquet with him

Chorus


Leader

When the fools return

It's pity the door has been shut

They banged at the door

Shouting but the door wasn't opened

Chorus


Leader

Go away from me

The groom says to the foolish ones

I do not know you

Because you never did love me

Chorus


Leader

Be one of the wise

That the groom will acknowledge

With all that you have

Love an serve even the groom

Chorus

This song tells us a story, and it is a very good story, Olusegun.
