Dark But Lovely (SOS 1:5-6)... As long as we live in these mortal bodies... sing this song.

lyrics

Dark But Lovely
Words and music by Lee Behnken (6/06)
Song of Songs 1:5

I am dark but lovely to You oh Holy One
I am dark but lovely to You
I am dark but lovely to You whom my soul loves
I am dark but lovely to You

You know my weaknesses
You know my shame
Every wickedness
Every stain

I am dark but You love me…
I am dark but You love me…
I am dark but You love me… (Quicken)
…but You love me
Dark but You love me, oh God

Look away from me, oh daughters of my Lord
Look away from me, little ones
Look away from me, oh sisters of my Lord
Look away from me, look to God

Cause He knows my weaknesses
He knows my shame
Every wickedness
Every stain

I am dark but You love me…
I am dark but You love me…
I am dark but You love me… (Quicken)
I am dark but you love me…
I am dark but you love me… Oh God
Oh my God…
Oh my God…
Oh my God…

(Bridge)
Yes I deserve to be put away
But You’ve put Your love deep inside me to stay

And I am dark but You love me…
I am dark but You love me…
I am dark but You love me… (Quicken)
I am dark but You love me
I am dark but You love me my God
Oh my God…
Oh my God…
Oh my God…
Oh my God…
Oh my God…
