When it says Jesus is the lily of the valley ......?

Is this from the Bible or is this only from poetry and songs of adoration? What does this mean to you?

When it says Jesus is the lily of the valley ......?

The %26quot;Rose of Sharon and Lily of the valley%26quot; come from the Song of Songs.

It is the Ethiopean(?) princess who was the beloved of Solomon that called herself the lily of the valley in the biblical love poem.

It is attached to Jesus by worship song writers... although why a title of an African woman is given to Jesus, I would not know...
Reply:From the Song....! [see links below]

The Words and Music....are on the first link! Most churches.... do not sing the Old Hyms of the FAITH...!

The use the New... %26quot;7-11%26quot;... music [ ? ] You know.... 7 words....11 times.... without any meaning or thought!

Thanks for Asking ! In Christ Jesus.... Roger R.
Reply:Sort of --- it%26#039;s from the Song of Solomon, which most Christians think pertains not only to earthly marriage but also to the heavenly marriage of Jesus and His bride, the Church.

Song 2:1,6-8,16 (NIV) I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys... O that his left hand were under my head, and that his right hand embraced me! I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the wild does: do not stir up or awaken love until it is ready! The voice of my beloved! Look, he comes, leaping upon the mountains, bounding over the hills... My lover is mine and I am his; he browses among the lilies.

However, since it is clearly speaking about the wife in this context, I think it would be more accurate to say that it%26#039;s the church rather than Jesus at least if you want to know what it represents in Scripture.

Reply:sound like a song like a country song
Reply:it is not from the Bible
Reply:May be from anything but this is a reality.Christ is the Soul who will always ride our hearts.He is in fact the valley made of lilies.
