Artist's Description

The Pink Mum was inspired by a work on RB —
done in watercolor and Italian coffee.

Song of Sol 2:12 The FLOWERS appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle dove is heard in our land;
Verses 8-13
The church is here pleasing herself exceedingly with the thoughts of her further communion with Christ after she has recovered from her fainting fit

I. She rejoices in his approach, v. 8. 1. She hears him speak: “It is the voice of my beloved, calling me to tell me he is coming.” Like one of his own sheep, she knows his voice before she sees him, and can easily distinguish it from the voice of a stranger (Jn. 10:4, 5), and, like a faithful friend of the bridegroom, she rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice, Jn. 3:29. With what an air of triumph and exultation does she cry out, “It is the voice of my beloved, it can be the voice of no other, for none besides him can speak to the heart and make that burn.” 2. She sees him come, sees the goings of our God, and our King, Ps. 48:24. Behold, he comes. This may very well be applied to the prospect with the Old-Testament saints had of Christ’s coming in the flesh. Abraham saw his day at a distance, and was glad. The nearer the time came the clearer discoveries were made of it; and those that waited for the consolation of Israel with an eye of faith saw him come, and triumphed in the sight: Behold, he comes; for they had heard him say (Ps. 40:7), Lo, I come, to which their faith here affixes its seal: Behold, he comes as he has promised. (1.) He comes cheerfully and with great alacrity; he comes leaping and skipping like a roe and like a young hart (v. 9), as one pleased with his own undertaking, and that had his heart upon it and his delights with the sons of men. When he came to be baptized with the baptism of blood, how was he straitened till it was accomplished! Lu. 12:50. (2.) He comes slighting and surmounting all the difficulties that lay in his way; he comes leaping over the mountains, skipping over the hills (so some read it), making nothing of the discouragements he was to break through; the curse of the law, the death of the cross, must be undergone, all the powers of darkness must be grappled with, but, before the resolutions of his love, these great mountains become plains.
II. Whatever opposition is given at any time to the deliverance of God’s church, Christ will break through it, will get over it. (3.) He comes speedily, like a roe or a young hart; they thought the time long (every day a year), but really he hastened; as now, so then, surely he comes quickly; he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. When he comes for the deliverance of his people he flies upon a cloud, and never stays beyond his time, which is the best time. We may apply it to particular believers, who find that even when Christ has withdrawn sensible comforts, and seems to forsake, yet it is but for a small moment, and he will soon return with everlasting loving-kindness.
III. From Biblos— a parallel translation
