“Duty Call”

1 This is Solomon’s song of songs, 2 more wonderful than any other. Young Woman Kiss me and kiss me again, for your love is sweeter than wine. 3 How fragrant your cologne;
Your name is like its spreading fragrance.
No wonder all the young women love you! 4 Take me with you; come, let’s run!
The king has brought me into his bedroom. – Song of Solomon 1:1-4 (NLT)
5 But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the LION of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.” 6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a LAMB as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. – Revelation 5:5-6 (NKJV)
