Our Beloved alone
can do sinners good. His blood alone atones.
He loved us unto death!
Jesus has at once an almighty arm--and a brother's heart!
None is more exalted--yet none stoops so low!
None is mightier--yet none is more tender! He shall not
break the bruised reed, nor quench the smoking flax.
He is meek and lowly, merciful and mild--at the same
time He is the omnipotent Jehovah!
He enlightens, purifies and comforts the heart!
His word cannot be broken!
His power cannot be resisted!
The law of heavenly kindness is in His heart!
Great is His faithfulness!
His royal titles are . . .
Prince of Peace!
To the pious, Jesus is the source of . . .
Jesus is still as gentle, as kind, as tender as when He . . .
wept at the grave of Lazarus,
gave eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame,
or granted mercy to a wretch hanging by His side.
In Him dwell all excellencies!
He is full of grace and truth!
He takes poor, vile, ignorant, guilty, helpless
sinners--raises them to sonship with God, and
makes them partakers of His holiness!
There is none like Him--no, not one!
He is the chief among ten thousand!
Wherever He is, there is heaven!
There is none like Jesus!
