The Queen's Questions

"And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the Lord, she came to prove him with hard questions.... And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not anything hid from the king, which he told her not.... And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and thy wisdom.... and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard" (1 Kings 10:1-7). "The queen of the south... came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here" (Matthew 12:42).

The queen of Sheba heard the fame
Of Solomon the king,
And armed with all her questions came,
Withholding not a thing.

His answers came at her request
With ease and no surprise;
She knew that he was surely blessed
By God who made him wise.

Behold, there is a greater One
Than Solomon we see
In David's Lord and greater Son,
Who reigns in majesty!

The half has surely not been told;
We've barely probed the facts
Of wisdom God will yet unfold
In all His wondrous acts.

Behold our Savior and our Lord,
Our God and our Creator,
Our King exalted and adored:
There is no other greater!
