I'm in love

"...He is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend..."

"I am my beloved's, and His desire is toward me."

"Who is a God like into thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger forever, because he delighteth in mercy."

"Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips... ...Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever; the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness... ...all thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad. Kings daughters were among thy honorable women...Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline they ear; forget thine own people and thy father's house."

"Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee..."

"How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied..."

"I will love thee, O LORD, my strength."

"O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my LORD...the lines have fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage...I will bless the LORD,...Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth; my flesh also shall rest in hope. ...Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand are pleasures for evermore."
