L.M.

1
The Queen of Sheba came from far,
Like those who saw the leading star;
Wishing to learn from David’s son,
What things the God of grace had done.

2
News of this king had reached her ear,
But she would see as well as hear;
And when she saw his glory such,
She never wondered half so much.

3
And if, like her, we prove His love,
Who’s King of kings and Lord above,
We’ll surely say, as she of old,
He’s greater far than we were told.

4
More lovely far than we had thought,
Is He by whom our souls are taught,
More grace and goodness from Him flow
Than any at a distance know.
