The Wedding Song of Sophia
The Maiden is Lights Daughter; On her the Kings’ Radiance resteth. Stately her Look and delightsome. With radiant beauty forth-shining. Like unto spring-flowers are her Garments, From them streameth scent of sweet odour.
The Wedding Song of Wisdom, a title given by Mead, is a fragment in the gnostic Acts of Thomas, describing how St. Thomas broke into song out of dismay while attending the Indian King’s wedding banquet for his daughter.
