Which of our senses shall be most enthralled?

Andrew Gray (1634-1656) "Christ Precious to Believers"

"My beloved is radiant and dazzling, better
 than ten thousand others!" Canticles 5:10

When we shall come to heaven, we will not know
which of our senses shall be most enthralled.

The eye shall be enchanted. What joy to see there
the sparkling brightness in the face of Christ! There
you may see the lily and the rose mixed—white and
reddish. Canticles 5:10.

The ear shall be filled with melody. What joy
to the spouse to hear Christ's voice—to hear
Him say, "My love, My dove, My undefiled!"

The smell shall be filled with sweet savor. What
joy to smell that fragrancy and perfume which
comes from Christ! All His garments smell of
myrrh, aloes, and cassia—giving forth His
fragrance as the wine of Lebanon.

The taste shall be delighted. O what joy is
there to be drinking in the fountain of Christ,
who is the water of life!

The touch shall be charmed. The saints shall
be forever in the embraces of Christ! "Behold
My hands and My feet—handle Me, and see."
That will be our occupation in heaven, when
we shall dwell between those sweet arms that
were once stretched out upon the cross!

"My beloved is radiant and dazzling, better
 than ten thousand others!" Canticles 5:10
