Thou art fairer than the children of men
Brothers and Sisters
Take a few precious moments and drift into adoration and praise of our Beloved Lord Jesus Christ
Oh, Jesus! Thy power, Thy grace, Thy justice, Thy tenderness, Thy truth, Thy majesty, and Thine immutability make up such a man, or rather such a God-man, as neither heaven nor earth hath seen elsewhere.
Thy infancy, Thy eternity, Thy sufferings, Thy triumphs, Thy death, and Thine immortality, are all woven in one gorgeous tapestry, without seam or rent.
Thou art music
Thou art many, and yet not divided;
Thou art all things, and yet not diverse.
As all the colours blend into one resplendent rainbow, so all the glories of heaven and earth meet in Thee, and unite so wondrously, that there is none like Thee in all things;
Nay, if all the virtues of the most excellent were bound in one bundle, they could not rival Thee,
Thou mirror of all perfection.
Thou hast been anointed with the holy oil of myrrh and cassia, which thy God hath reserved for Thee alone; and as for Thy fragrance, it is as the holy perfume, the like of which none other can ever mingle, even with the art of the apothecary; each spice is fragrant, but the compound is divine.
Unto you therefore which believe He is precious
1 Peter 2:9
