THE FAIREST HE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: None like he, of the sons of men
Last Line: Of matchless worth.
Variant Title(s): Is He Not Fair
Subject(s): Jesus Christ

None like Him, of the sons of men,
Of all that noble be;
Among ten thousand of the fair,
The fairest He!

Yea, altogether lovely He;
All-perfect, like Him none;
Of excellent the chiefest He,
The Spotless One.

His is the name of names in heaven,
The name of names on earth;
I glory in that glorious name
Of matchless worth.
