There is a green hill far away,
  Without a city wall,
    Where the dear Lord was crucified
      Who died to save us all.
      - Mrs. Cecil Frances Alexander,
        There Is a Green Hill

Christ is the Good Physician. There is no disease He cannot heal; no sin He cannot remove; no trouble He cannot help. He is the Balm of Gilead, the Great Physician who has never yet failed to heal all the spiritual maladies of every soul that has come unto Him in faith and prayer.
      - James H. Aughey

On the head of Christ are many crowns. He wears the crown of victory; He wears the crown of sovereignty; He wears the crown of creation; He wears the crown of providence; He wears the crown of grace; He wears the crown of glory--for every one of His glorified people owes his honor, happiness and blessedness to Him.
      - James H. Aughey

I have read in Plato and Cicero sayings that are very wise and very beautiful; but I never read in either of them, "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden."
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

"And whatsover ye do in word or deed--all in the name of the Lord Jesus." "Do" does not belong there. There is more than doing in life. Thinking, speaking, hoping, planning, dreaming--all are to be in the name of the Lord Jesus. His love and life are to color and shape our ambitions and accomplishments. In Him, as a plant in soil, in rain and sunshine, we are to live, growing up by Him and into Him. In His name we are to work, to pray, to suffer, to rejoice, and at last to go home. It is only another way of saying, "For me to live is Christ."
      - Maltbie Davenport Babcock

God be thanked for that good and perfect gift, the gift unspeakable: His life, His love, His very self in Jesus Christ.
      - Maltbie Davenport Babcock

What is our hope but the indwelling Spirit of Christ, to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, to inspire every word and deed by His love? Then will "broken lights" blend in steady shining, the fractional be summed up in the integral, and life, unified and beautified by the central Christ, radiate God's glory, and shine with divine effulgence.
      - Maltbie Davenport Babcock

Star canto: star speaks light, and world to world
  Repeats the passage of the universe
    To God; the name of Christ--the one great word
      Well worth all languages in earth or heaven.
      - Philip James Bailey

The name of Christ--the one great word well worth all languages in earth or heaven.
      - Philip James Bailey

Christ is a rare jewel, but men know not His value; a sun which ever shines, but men perceive not His brightness, nor walk in His light. He is a garden full of sweets, a hive full of honey, a sun without a spot, a star ever bright, a fountain ever full, a brook which ever flows, a rose which ever blooms, a foundation which never yields, a guide who never errs, a friend who never forsakes. No mind can fully grasp His glory; His beauty, His worth, His importance, no tongue can fully declare. He is the source of all good, the fountain of every excellency, the mirror of perfection, the light of heaven, the wonder of the earth, time's masterpiece, and eternity's glory; the sun of bliss, the way of life, and life's fair way. "He is altogether lovely," says the saint; a morning without clouds, a day without night, a rose without a thorn; His lips drop like the honeycomb, His eyes beam tenderness; His heart gushes love. The Christian is fed by His hands, carried in His heart, supported by His arm, nursed in His bosom, guided by His eye, instructed by His lips, warmed by His love; His wounds are his life, His smile the light of his path, the health of his soul, his rest and heaven below.
      - Arthur James Balfour (1st Earl of Balfour)

If Christ is the wisdom of God and the power of God in the experience of those who trust and love Him, there needs no further argument of His divinity.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Men who neglect. Christ, and try to win heaven through moralities, are like sailors at sea in a storm, who pull, some at the bowsprit and some at the mainmast, but never touch the helm.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Hail, O bleeding Head and wounded,
  With a crown of thorns surrounded,
    Buffeted, and bruised and battered,
      Smote with reed by striking shattered,
        Face with spittle vilely smeared!
          Hail, whose visage sweet and comely,
            Marred by fouling stains and homely,
              Changed as to its blooming color,
                All now turned to deathly pallor,
                  Making heavenly hosts affeared!
      - Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, Passion Hymn,
        (Abraham Coles' translation)

Jesus! How doss the very word overflow with sweetness, and light, and love, and life; filling the air with odors, like precious ointment poured forth; irradiating the mind with a glory of truths on which no fear can live, soothing the wounds of the heart with a balm that turns the sharpest anguish into delicious peace, shedding through the soul a cordial of immortal strength. Jesus! the answer to all our doubts, the spring of all our courage, the earnest of all our hopes, the charm omnipotent against all our foes, the remedy for all weakness, the supply of all our wants, the fullness of all our desires. Jesus! at the mention of whose name every knee shall bow and every tongue confess. Jesus! our power: Jesus! our righteousness, our sanctification, our redemption--Jesus! our elder brother, our blessed Lord and Redeemer. Thy name is the most transporting theme of the church, as they sing going up from the valley of tears, to their home on the mount of God; Thy name shall ever be the richest chord in the harmony of heaven, while the angels and the redeemed unite their exulting, adoring songs around the throne of God.
      - George W. Bethune

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
      - Bible, Colossians (ch. II, v. 9)

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
      - Bible, Isaiah (ch. IX, v. 6)

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
      - Bible, Isaiah (ch. LIII, v. 4)

In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in His love and in His pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.
      - Bible, Isaiah (ch. LXIII, v. 9)

The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
      - Bible, John (ch. I, v. 29)

And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
      - Bible, Matthew (ch. VIII, v. 20)

Rejecting the miracles of Christ, we still have the miracle of Christ Himself.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

He that condescended so far, and stooped so low, to invite and bring us to heaven, will not refuse us a gracious reception there.
      - Robert Boyle

The absence of sentimentalism in Christ's relations with men is what makes His tenderness so exquisitely touching.
      - Phillips Brooks

In every pang that rends the heart
  The Man of Sorrows had a part.
      - Michael Bruce,
        Gospel Sounds--Christ Ascended

Great occasions rally great principles, and brace the mind to a lofty bearing, a bearing that is even above itself. But trials that make no occasion at all, leave it to show the goodness and beauty it has in its own disposition. And here precisely is the superhuman glory of Christ as a character, that He is just as perfect, exhibits just as great a spirit in little trials as in great ones.
      - Horace Bushnell
