"I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys." - Song of Solomon 2:1
May's birth flowers are lilies of the valley and hawthorn. The song "The Lily of The Valley" comes to mind. The chorus of the song calls Jesus as the "lily of the Valley" (Song of Solomon 2:1-2), and "the bright and morning star" (Revelation 22:16). "He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul" echoes in the hearts of those who have followed Him and have known the blessings that He offers!
Because of the Gospel, we have the same life of Christ in us. Praise God for His salvation!
Lily of the Valley / Fairest Lord Jesus (Medley)
I’ve found a friend in Jesus,
He’s everything to me,
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
In sorrow He’s my comfort,
in trouble He’s my stay;
He tells me every care on Him to roll.
He’s the Lily of the Valley,
the Bright and Morning Star,
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
He’ll never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here,
While I live by faith and do His blessed will;
A wall of fire about me, I’ve nothing now to fear,
With His manna He my hungry soul shall fill.
Then sweeping up to glory to see His blessed face,
Where rivers of delight shall ever roll. [Chorus]
Fairest Lord Jesus! Ruler of all nature!
Son of God and son of man! [Chorus]
