It is nearly impossible to know the Savior without being elevated to lofty and exalted thoughts of Him. It is little wonder then, that the Puritans put their pens to writing about the Physician of their souls as well as matters of the soul. Here are hundreds of poems on the most noble of all themes, the Lord Jesus Christ, by some of His choicest servants: Samuel Davies, Phillip Doodridge, Ralph Erskine, John Flavel, John Newton, Augustus Toplady, Issac Watts and others.
