My Wonderful Lord

by Charles H. Spurgeon

"You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever." Psalm 45:2 (NASB)

The entire person of Jesus is one gem. His total life is one impression of the seal. He is altogether complete, not only in His several parts, but also as a gracious all-glorious whole.

His character is not a mass of beautiful colors mixed with confusion. He is not a heap of precious stones laid carelessly on one another. He is a picture of beauty and a breastplate of glory. In Him, all good things are in their proper place and assist in adorning each other. Not one feature in His glorious person attracts attention at the expense of another. He is perfect and altogether lovely.

Oh Jesus! Your power, Your grace, Your justice, Your tenderness, Your truth, Your majesty, and Your immutability make up a God-man that neither heaven nor earth have seen elsewhere.

Your infancy, Your eternity, Your sufferings, Your triumphs, Your death, and Your immortality are all woven into one gorgeous and seamless tapestry. You are music without discord. You are many, but not divided. You are all things, yet not diversity. As all the colors blend into one resplendent rainbow, all the glories of heaven and earth meet in You. They unite so wondrously that there is none like You.

If all the most excellent virtues were bound in one bundle, they could not rival You. You are the mirror of all perfection. You have been anointed with the holy oil of myrrh and cassia that God has reserved for You alone. Your fragrance is holy perfume unequaled and unmatched. Each space is fragrant but the compound is truly divine:

Oh, sacred symmetry! oh, rare connection
Of many perfects, to make one perfection!
Oh, heavenly music, where all parts do meet
In one sweet strain, to make one perfect sweet!
