AMIABLE

"Think on these things" ‑ how amiable He was!
Seeing His grace  how many souls were drawn:
Peter could say  for Christ he had left all,
While Matthew hastened  when answering His call;
The woman slighted  the Pharisees' discord
That she might be  near her beloved Lord;
And the brave women  with the disciple John
Knowing His loveliness  stood by the cross.
How amiable He is ‑  the theme of song
Of myriads of souls  whom He has bought;
But, more than this,  eternity shall vaunt
How amiable  Christ Jesus is to God.
