The Sufficiency of Christ

Nathan's post reminded me of this hymn.

Jesus, Jesus, all-sufficient,
Beyond telling is Thy worth;
In Thy Name lie greater treasures
Than the richest found on earth.
Such abundance
Is my portion with my God.

In Thy gracious face there's beauty
Far surpassing every thing
Found in all the earth's great wonders
Mortal eye hath ever seen.
Rose of Sharon,
Thou Thyself art heaven's delight.

William Williams, 1717-91;
tr. by Robert Maynard Jones (Bobi Jones), 1929-
