More Precious Than Rubies

Diamond, Diamonds, Gem, Gemstone, Ruby

This morning, I am thinking what a gem our Lord is. Jesus is called many things by all of us and His names always point to what He does for us. He is our Savior. He saved us. He is our comforter. He is there for us. He is our rock, our foundation. He is our friend. He talks to us. Can you think of a few names of your own for Him? Don’t you love that all of His names are based on His love for us? He is more precious than Rubies!

More precious than rubies that dress up some ears,
more shiny than diamonds that bring some to tears,
more valued than emeralds whose color is rare,
is Jesus my Savior to whom none compare.

Most precious my Father’s shed blood on the cross,
most perfect His love that paid for my loss.
Mercy and hope, love, peace and grace,
a bounty to all when He died in our place.

Most prized the wisdom that flows from His word,
my cornerstone gem is Jesus my Lord.
His presence I treasure down deep in my soul,
as I praise Him forever, ’til eternity rolls.
