“Your love is better than wine.” Song of Solomon 1:2
He has enjoyment as others have in the common mercies of life; he can be glad both in God’s gifts and God’s works. But in all these separately, yes, and in all of them added together, he does not find such substantial delight as in the matchless person of his Lord Jesus. He has wine which no vineyard on earth ever yielded; he has bread which all the cornfields of Egypt could never bring forth. Where can such sweetness be found as we have tasted in communion with our Beloved?
