These kisses were seals of love, comparable to the witness of the Spirit in believing men. Such tokens unloose the tongue, and enable us to talk with Jesus in the holy familiarities of sacred fellowship. “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth” saith the spouse in the song. Amen. The Lord do so unto each one of us.
Oh see how Jesus trusts himself
Unto our childish love,
As though by his free ways with us
Our earnestness to prove!
His sacred name a common word
On earth he loves to hear;
There is no majesty in him
Which love may not come near.
The light of love is round his feet,
His paths are never dim;
And he comes nigh to us when we
Dare not come nigh to him.
