If God's word came quickly
To name Solomon Jedidiah
- 'Whom Jehovah loveth'-
How much more God delighted
To own as His Beloved
The true Solomon.

If the sons of Korah
Ranged across the King's glories
And his features of nobility
How right that the production is called
'A song of the Beloved'.

If we are constituted righteous
What has been the cost!
For who is the One in whom
We have redemption; through
Whose blood is it? He whom
God names 'the Beloved'.

If the pure in heart receive this blessing
To see God; if he who
Loves pureness of heart
Has the king for friend, God's
Pure words are beloved to him.
