"Hark! how they sing before the throne!" and I have sometimes thought I could "hark! how they sing before the throne."

The Bridegroom invites the Spouse to set Him as a seal upon her heart; for as He is the source of her life, He ought also to be its seal. It is He who hinders her from ever leaving so blessed a state; she is then the fountain sealed, which none but Himself can either open or shut.
