The Rose of Sharon

'I am the rose of Sharon' - Song of Songs 2:1
"Whatever there may be of beauty in the material world, Jesus Christ possesses all that in the spiritual world in a tenfold degree. Amongst flowers the rose is deemed the sweetest, but Jesus is infinitely more beautiful in the garden of the soul then the rose can be in the gardens of earth. He takes the first place as the fairest among ten thousand. He is the sun, and all others are the stars: the heavens and the day are dark in comparison with Him, for the King in His beauty transcends all." - C.H.Spurgeon
