Song of Solomon 7:4
4“Your neck is like a tower of ivory,
         Your eyes like the pools in Heshbon
         By the gate of Bath-rabbim;
         Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon,
         Which faces toward Damascus.

5“Your head crowns you like Carmel,
         And the flowing locks of your head are like purple threads;
         The king is captivated by your tresses.

6“How beautiful and how delightful you are,
         My love, with all your charms!

7“Your stature is like a palm tree,
         And your breasts are like its clusters.

8“I said, ‘I will climb the palm tree,
         I will take hold of its fruit stalks.’
         Oh, may your breasts be like clusters of the vine,
         And the fragrance of your breath like apples,

9And your mouth like the best wine!”
      “It goes down smoothly for my beloved,
         Flowing gently through the lips of those who fall asleep.

The Union of Love

10“I am my beloved’s,
         And his desire is for me.

11“Come, my beloved, let us go out into the country,
         Let us spend the night in the villages.

12“Let us rise early and go to the vineyards;
         Let us see whether the vine has budded
         And its blossoms have opened,
         And whether the pomegranates have bloomed.
         There I will give you my love.

13“The mandrakes have given forth fragrance;
         And over our doors are all choice fruits,
         Both new and old,
         Which I have saved up for you, my beloved.

Song of Songs
The contents of this book justify the description of it in the title, i. 1, as the "loveliest song"--for that is the meaning of the Hebrew idiom "song of songs." It abounds in poetical gems of the purest ray. It breathes the bracing air of the hill country, and the passionate love of man for woman and woman for man. It is a revelation of the keen Hebrew delight in nature, in her vineyards and pastures, flowers and fruit trees, in her doves and deer and sheep and goats. It is a song tremulous from

Seeking the Pastures of Christ the Shepherd. Ss 1:07
Seeking the pastures of Christ the Shepherd. SS 1:7. Thou whom my soul admires above All earthly joy and earthly love, Tell me, dear Shepherd, let me know, Where doth thy sweetest pasture grow? Where is the shadow of that rock, That from the sun defends thy flock? Fain would I feed among thy sheep, Among them rest, among them sleep. Why should thy bride appear like one That turns aside to paths unknown? My constant feet would never rove, Would never seek another love. [The footsteps of thy flock

Christ Inviting, and the Church Answering the Invitation. Ss 2:14-17.
Christ inviting, and the church answering the invitation. SS 2:14-17. [Hark! the Redeemer from on high Sweetly invites his fav'rites nigh; From caves of darkness and of doubt, He gently speaks, and calls us out. "My dove, who hidest in the rock, Thine heart almost with sorrow broke, Lift up thy face, forget thy fear, And let thy voice delight mine ear. "Thy voice to me sounds ever sweet; My graces in thy count'nance meet; Though the vain world thy face despise, 'Tis bright and comely in mine eyes."

Christ Appearing to his Church, and Seeking Her Company. Ss 2:8-13.
Christ appearing to his church, and seeking her company. SS 2:8-13. The voice of my Beloved sounds Over the rocks and rising grounds; O'er hills of guilt and seas of grief He leaps, he flies to my relief. Now through the veil of flesh I see With eyes of love he looks at me; Now in the gospel's clearest glass He shows the beauties of his face. Gently he draws my heart along, Both with his beauties and his tongue; "Rise," saith my Lord, "make haste away, No mortal joys are worth thy stay. "The

The church the garden of Christ. SS 4:12-15; 5:1. We are a garden walled around, Chosen and made peculiar ground; A little spot enclosed by grace Out of the world's wide wilderness. Like trees of myrrh and spice we stand, Planted by God the Father's hand; And all his springs in Zion flow, To make the young plantation grow. Awake, O, heav'nly wind! and come, Blow on this garden of perfume; Spirit divine! descend and breathe A gracious gale on plants beneath. Make our best spices flow abroad, To

The Man and the Book.
In this and the following lectures I attempt an account and estimate of the Prophet Jeremiah, of his life and teaching, and of the Book which contains them--but especially of the man himself, his personality and his tempers (there were more than one), his religious experience and its achievements, with the various high styles of their expression; as well as his influence on the subsequent religion of his people. It has often been asserted that in Jeremiah's ministry more than in any other of the
