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.
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.
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.
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.
