I am dark, daughters of Jerusalem and I am beautiful!
Mother of us All
teach me to see the beauty in the Mystery.
Help me to relinquish my need to figure out the Holy One
with the feeble tool of my intellect
and instead encompass divine truth
with my open heart
I am tired of fighting for control.
I am ready to lay down my sword
at your gentle feet, Blessed Mother.
Give me the courage to enter the secret cave
where you hold the Redeemer nestled in your loving arms.
Your face radiates from the gaze of the angels that surround you.
Let me find my own true face reflected there.
Then I will be able to sing with the Bride
|The French Madonna|
Do not see me as only dark: the sun has started in me.
