Be thankful to Him, and bless His name
To bless His name is to praise
We praise each of His qualities
We praise the beauty of Christ’s personality
Spurgeon notes that
Our Lord wants us to entertain high and happy thoughts
concerning His blessed person.
Jesus doesn’t want us to think shabby thoughts of Him;
It pleases Him that His espoused ones are delighted with:
Overwhelmed with His luxurious delicacy,
Astounded with His rare and ravishing delights.
He has revealed Himself as the “pearl of great price”
His beauty is peerless,
His fragrances are as a “bundle of myrrh”
in its refreshing bouquet,
His lasting perfume is like the “rose of Sharon”
in its lasting aroma,
He is the “lily” in its spotless purity.
God esteems Him the unique and Only Begotten,
He is Heavens greatest unspeakable gift to us.
The Angels think of Jesus, as the name above every name
as they count it their highest honor
to veil their faces at His feet
To see Him is deeply inspiring
we sing His well deserved praises constantly.
High thoughts of Christ enable us to act consistently
In closeness to Him.
The more deeply we love someone
the more highly we esteem them.
Our Master’s excellencies are
We Study Him in His glory,
before he took on Himself our nature!
We think of the mighty love that drew Him from
His throne to die on the cross!
We Admire Him as
He conquers all the powers of hell!
We See Him risen, crowned, glorified!
We Bow before Him as
the Wonderful, the Counsellor, the mighty God,
He is stimulating in His love to us
we want could adore and love Him
we want only to bless and praise Him as He deserves.
He receives us and He embraces each expression
from our hearts in a loving embrace
He bows low
He lifts us high
We are blessed In His majestic person
