“Yes, He is altogether lovely! This is my Beloved, and this is my Friend.” Song of Songs 5:16

​…​Jesus Christ is the loveliest person souls can set their eyes upon. He is the very essence of all delights and pleasures, the very soul and substance of them! As all the rivers are gathered into the ocean, which is the meeting-place of all the waters in the world–so Christ is that ocean in which all true delights and pleasures meet!

 

Christ infinitely transcends the most excellent and loveliest of created things. The excellencies our altogether lovely Christ​ ​are pure and unmixed. He is a sea of sweetness without one drop of gall!

“Yes, He is altogether lovely! This is my Beloved, and this is my Friend.” Song of Songs 5:16
