Jesus, How Precious Thou Art

3 10 2007

After reading McCheyene’s comments in the previous post about the preciousness of Christ, I was reminded of a short poem I wrote several years ago when meditating through Hebrews.

The term “precious” has lost much of its meaning in our day. It is most often used as an adjective describing an infant–and rightfully so. But “precious” also refers to that which is “valuable,” or in many cases, “priceless.” With that in mind, here’s the poem, and the verses it is built off of:

Jesus, how precious Thou art
To man, the visible invisible GOD
To GOD exact holiness of heart;
Jesus, how precious Thou art.

And, I hope that you can see in the following verses where I gleaned the substance for the short poem:

Hebrews 1:3–“And [Jesus] is the radiance of [God the Father’s] glory and the exact representation of His nature…”

  • That’s where I got the, “To man, the visible invisible GOD” part.

Hebrews 1:9–(The Father says of the Son)–“Thou has loved righteousness and hated lawlessness...”
