Dark Yet Lovely: by Sarah Edwards

I can’t understand this work of grace.

How a perfect God would come and take my place.

The stars they don’t move You,

the waves can’t undo You

the mountains in their splendor cannot steal Your heart,

this God who is holy, perfect in beauty, awesome in glory

Is ravished by my heart.

Though I am dark, You say I am lovely

Though I am poor, You say I am beautiful

I know that,

Somehow my weak glance has overwhelmed You.

Somehow my weak love has stolen away Your heart.

“You have ravished my heart, my sister, my bride; You have ravished my heart with one look of your eyes” Song of Songs 4:9

“Lord I believe it, but help my unbelief.”  Mark 9:24
