All loveliness, all excellence, all glory!
(Winslow, "A Sight of Sin and a Sight of Jesus")
Jesus is the most lovely, winning, wondrous object
upon which the intelligent eye ever rested.
Trace the points of attraction which meet in Jesus,
and marvel not that when the eye fixes on them,
the heart is irresistibly won, the soul is instantly
dissolved, and the believer prostrates himself at
the foot of the cross in the profoundest sense of
his vileness before God.
All loveliness, all excellence, all glory
meet and center in Jesus the Crucified.
He is the most wonderful, as He is the most
beauteous and attractive being in the universe.
All the infinite perfection of absolute Deity, all
the finite excellence of impeccable humanity,
concentrate in Christ.
