I once saw God,
As through a window in my soul I peered.
He was just as I suspected, Just as I feared.
So selfish and cruel He appeared to be;
So very ugly, So unlike me.
Then looked I deeper, Still deeper with time;
T’was a mirror all along,
And the image was mine.
I now see God,
As to His Son I gaze;
So beautiful with goodness are all of His ways.
As I continue to look deeper; Still deeper with time,
His character of love
Finds a mirror in mine.
