How Can It Be?

How can it be
that You have
come to love me?

I am altogether
unlovely and unworthy
of One such as You.

How can it be
that You find
me beautiful?

I am unclean
through and through
and dark of heart.

How can it be
that You look
on me without flinching?

I have been despicable
from childhood and youth
and unlikely to thrive or succeed.

If it is true
that You love me
then it is because You are Love.

If it is true
that You see me as beautiful
then it is because beauty begins with You.

If it is true
that You regard me as redeemable
then it is because redemption flows from You.

How can it be?
It can only be
because of You.
