Perfection of Beauty by Blaire Linne

Beauty is sold in exchange for a “dime” Nothing to attract us to You,
yet we worship Your creation as fine
Captivated by its forbidden fruit
Pleasing our senses, so we suppress
the truth And eat the lie
Media’s fig leaf deadening our soul and mind
Sin blinding us to You
The only objective Beauty that’s truly absolute
Hidden in the symmetry of Your
goodness, glory and truth
Each attribute working harmoniously
Justice with patience, wrath with
graciousness Omnipotence with
humility, long-suffering with
Each a note to a sweet melody
The ultimate hymn entitled “God’s  Beauty” Immutable, no change Because “dimes” get lost daydreaming in dark gutters Unable
to hear the call to wake up
They, the noose, dripping honeysuckle Lips
pasted on with Mac makeup
If they truly beheld Your beauty You’d
make magazines and Mattell go
You sent Your Beloved to be lifted up On a beautiful, seemingly ugly cross
The visible image of Your hiddenness Only You are beautiful and yet invisible
True beauty is spiritual Therefore,
sanctify our worldly minds Your
complexion is unappealing to lustful
Besides, apart from new birth
in Christ Sinners beholding Your
Holy beauty would die
Therefore, beauty residing in the eye of the
beholder is a lie
It is found in the Beautiful One—The Most High
