Self Portrait

I took pen to paper and then I drew my face
A portrait so dark and true
A horribly ugly picture of me
So precise, as I ever knew

The lines I drew were jagged
The details so dank and dark
No beauty shone out of its frame
Each facet full of scar and mark

In shame I turned my eyes away
To see my true self laid bare
So hideous was myself to see
Unable to look, I could not dare

But the Father lifted up my chin
Lifting up my shame filled eyes
And when I saw what He did see
My heart and soul did cry

For there in place of horrid self
Was Jesus Christ my King
Hed covered up my scars and marks
And oh, did my heart sing!

Where ugly dreadful self once was
I saw only his loving face
Filling up disfigurement and wounds
To bring beauty to a desolate place

My God did see me as a lovely child
He only saw the grace
That covered me, once ugly child
Now reflection of his holy place

Self portrait now was pure and true
And told a different story
About how disfigured, marked and lost
Now reflects only Gods own glory.
