I behold the face of my beloved. I seriously doubt you would find it aesthetically pleasing, but you haven’t spent a lifetime in her love, so I can forgive you for that. But I’m willing to bet you would understand how I can gaze on her face and in my mind trace every detail with rapture.
One of my favorite songs offers the following lyrics:
In mirrors I have seen Your face
Your voice can reach me anywhere
And I begin to turn away
And You just turn me back again
And I belong
Yes, I belong
To You, oh Lord my God
(Mylon LeFevre, “I Belong” from Crack the Sky 1987)
