“The Perfection of Beauty”

I was at work listening to some christian rap music and I heard the song/poetry recital of Shai Linne’s ‘The Perfection of Beauty‘. Her profound words spoke about where to find true beauty, not in the sins of the world, not in the lies propagated by the media, but true beauty lies with God and His

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 faithfulness
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 bankrupt
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 eyes
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
