When disappointed in the creature!

(Mary Winslow)

Oh how lovely, how good, exceedingly good,
is Jesus Christ to unworthy me! He is enough
to satisfy my soul.

When disappointed in the creature, and I turn
with a sickening feeling from the world to Christ,
I find here no disappointment; here is . . .
fullness of joy,
an ocean of love,
a heart to feel and sympathize,
an eye to pity,
and a power, an infinite power . . .
to supply all my needs,
to comfort my drooping spirits,
to refresh my fainting heart, and
lift me with joy and peace in believing.

Jesus is an all satisfying portion,
and He is my portion, O my soul.
