Dearest Saviour, We Adore You

What words can adequately express the beauty, infinite worthiness, and glory of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ? The Word is bigger than our words could ever express. 

Samuel Rutherford, hymn-writer, said " I want nothing but a fuller revelation of the beauty of the Son of God. No pen, no words, no image can express to you the loveliness of my only Lord Jesus."

C.H.Spurgeon said "Of one thing I am sure, that nothing ever pierced my heart like the discovery of God's boundless love in giving His beloved Son to die for me."

Here are the words of a hymn by Thomas Kelly:


The Head that once was crowned with thorns
Is crowned with glory now;
A royal diadem adorns
The mighty Victor's brow.

The highest place that heav'n affords
Is His by sovereign right,
The King of kings and Lord of lords,
And heav'n's eternal Light;

The Joy of all who dwell above,
The Joy of all below
To whom He manifests His love
And grants His name to know.

To them the cross, with all its shame,
With all its grace, is giv'n;
Their name an everlasting name,
Their joy the joy of heaven.

They suffer with their Lord below,
They reign with Him above,
Their profit and their joy to know
The myst'ry of His love.

The cross He bore is life and health,
Though shame and death to Him:
His people's hope, His people's wealth,
Their everlasting theme.
