Whatsoever Is Lovely
A Valentine from Phillipeans Chapter 4
Another year, sweet Audrey
With you for my valentine;
Outside it’s pushing two below,
But here, inside, it’s fine.
For there’s a furnace in my breast
All warm for love of you,
A certainty that meets all tests
Of what is good and true.
For you are honest, you are just;
Lovely, of good report;
You are pure virtue’s living trust;
Paul’s words do not fall short.
And so when seeking lovliness
Or comeliness to praise,
My mind needs only think on you
And all my prospects raise.
For you are my sweet Phillipean,
My loving chapter four.
I need but think on you, sweet wife,
To feel blessed and adored.
Indeed, the Lord must love me
In that He gave me you;
What greater proof that He is there
Than that he made Dear, you.
So Thanks Lord for my Audrey
And for your servant, Paul;
Such beauteous truth blessing my days
Will save me after all.
