THOUGHTS UPON SONG OF SOLOMON VII. 8, 9.

" I said, I will go up to the palm tree, I will take hold of the boughs thereof : now also thy breasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy nose like apples; and the roof of thy mouth like the best wine for my Beloved, that goeth down sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.

(Concluded from page 256.) Now, we find in our text that the child of God expresses a resolution that the Holy Spirit had formed in her heart—" I said, I will go up to the palm tree.” The child of God had evidently been standing at a distance from Christ, or wandering from Him, and in this matter there generally come in two different causes. Sometimes there will be a diffidence in respect of Christ—a fear to approach Him, through losing sight of His grace and graciousness—and sometimes other things allure the heart from Christ, and it wantons for a time to some degree after other beloveds; and, to say the truth, this last, for the most part, is closely connected with, and springs from, the former. Something weakens faith, and then lust is sure to be prevalent. But now the heart perceives its wanderings, feels its sad condition, and discovers that there is nothing in Jesus to keep the desiring soul from coming to Him. The child of God feels his misery away from Christ, sees the remedy in Christ, and perceives how freely Christ is set forth in the Word of His Gospel. Hence he becomes encouraged and emboldened, and the resolution to go to Christ is formed_“I will go up to the palm tree.” “There is nothing in Christ to keep me away from Him. True, He is holy, and I am vile. But then He is for the sinner, not against him. Did any ever trust in Christ and find himself confounded ? Shall I then stand at a distance from Him ? Did He not come from heaven expressly to save sinners ? Does He not say to such-to any who are willing to come to Him—Come unto Me'? Has He not promised, “I will not cast out'? Is there not a fulness in Christ? Is there not equally a freeness ? Without Him I must perish; afar from Him I cannot thrive ; I will go up to Him. Yea, I shall not be despised. I will lay hold of those sweet branches of His grace, which He reaches forth so invitingly to the weary soul. I will lay hold of His strength, His wisdom, His righteousness, His atonement, His all-fulness. Oh, this sweet Jesus suits me to a nicety! I see, too, I may go to Him and welcome. I will stand no longer, then, at a distance desponding,
