Song of Solomon 5:10
Admiration by the Bride

10“My beloved is dazzling and ruddy,
         Outstanding among ten thousand.

11“His head is like gold, pure gold;
         His locks are like clusters of dates
         And black as a raven.

12“His eyes are like doves
         Beside streams of water,
         Bathed in milk,
         And reposed in their setting.

13“His cheeks are like a bed of balsam,
         Banks of sweet-scented herbs;
         His lips are lilies
         Dripping with liquid myrrh.

14“His hands are rods of gold
         Set with beryl;
         His abdomen is carved ivory
         Inlaid with sapphires.

15“His legs are pillars of alabaster
         Set on pedestals of pure gold;
         His appearance is like Lebanon
         Choice as the cedars.

16“His mouth is full of sweetness.
         And he is wholly desirable.
         This is my beloved and this is my friend,
         O daughters of Jerusalem.”

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

Christ Dwells in Heaven, but visits on Earth. Ss 6:1-3,12.
Christ dwells in heaven, but visits on earth. SS 6:1-3,12. When strangers stand and hear me tell What beauties in my Savior dwell, Where he is gone they fain would know, That they may seek and love him too. My best Beloved keeps his throne On hills of light, in worlds unknown; But he descends and shows his face In the young gardens of his grace. [In vineyards planted by his hand, Where fruitful trees in order stand; He feeds among the spicy beds, Where lilies show their spotless heads. He has
