“I was asleep but my heart was awake.
A voice! My beloved was knocking:
‘Open to me, my sister, my darling,
My dove, my perfect one!
For my head is drenched with dew,
My locks with the damp of the night.’”
— Song of Songs 5:2

The Lord here calls her “my sister, my love, my dove, my perfect one.” The Lord praises her in four aspects. Regarding life, she is His sister; regarding love, she is His love; regarding purity, she is like a dove; and regarding sanctification, she is His perfect one. The Lord asks this beautiful and lovely one to open to Him.

Adapted from The Journey of Life, page 247.
