May 3, 2021 – Song of Solomon 1-8

The Song of Songs, which is Solomon’s. It is a dialogue of love between Solomon and the woman he loves. But, as many have noted, it also speaks of that love in such a way as to remind us of Christ’s love for his bride, the church. The Song is not about the church, but in the larger context of the Bible, it is difficult for believers not to reflect on Christ’s love for us. We can’t help but think of Jesus’ prayer for his disciples and for us in John 17. And what about, in the context of writing about the marriage relationship, Paul reminds us that “Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her” (Ephesians 5:25). And in that same chapter, Paul calls us to “walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” A wonderful Savior have we!


A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,

a wonderful Savior to me.

He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,

where rivers of pleasure I see.

He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock

that shadows a dry, thirsty land.

He hideth my life in the depths of his love,

and covers me there with his hand,

and covers me there with his hand. –Fanny Crosby
