On Seeking Him With the Whole Heart

Sermon 75 on The Song of Songs

`On my bed night after night I sought him whom my soul loves. The Bridegroom has not returned when the Bride calls him back with cries and prayers. Why not? He wishes to increase her desire, test her affection, and exercise her faculty of love. He is not displeased with her, he is concealing his love.
