Hebrews 10:23-25: For the Love of Church

What is it you love?
Can you show it enough?
Or would you leave, yourself bereaving,
Is this how you love?

And do you then return,
The love you could not earn,
And spend your days forever praising,
Holiness we learn?

Do you love your life,
Too much to come to Christ?
And as His symbol – church assembling,
Gather as His bride.

To love we must provoke,
To righteousness invoke,
Exhort, reprove, and help: all-loving,
As the Teacher spoke.

Thus to church repair,
No worldly work-affair,
And Jesus Christ – His glory sighting,
We join each other there.
