MY BELOVED IS UNTO ME AS A CLUSTER OF CAMPHIRE
Song 1:14

Robert Hawker
(1753-1827)


"My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi."–Song i. 14.

How full, indeed how infinitely full, abundant, and soul-satisfying is Jesus, in all that concerns life, light, grace, glory! A cluster of all is Christ; whether the copher of medicine to heal, or of sweetness to satisfy, or of riches to enlarge, or salvation to impart. Every way, and in every thing that is lovely or desirable, Jesus is a cluster indeed to his people. And whether we meet him in the valley or in the mount, in the plains of Jericho, or in the vineyards of Engedi, neither place nor situation, neither state nor circumstances, make any alteration in our Beloved; he is, he must be, Jesus, and that is always lovely.

From the POOR MAN'S MORNING AND EVENING PORTIONS.
