The bride knows...that her soul is united and transformed with an abundance of heavenly riches and gifts; and that consequently she is now well prepared, disposed, and strong, leaning on her beloved, coming up from the desert of death, flowing with delights, to the glorious thrones of her bridegroom (Song 8:5).
