I am dark, but lovely. 

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me. § “Your fame went out among the nations because of your beauty, for it was perfect through My splendor which I had bestowed on you,” says the Lord God.

I am a sinful man, O Lord! § Behold, you are fair, my love! Behold, you are fair!

I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes. § You are all fair, my love, and there is no spot in you. I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. § Be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.

I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells. § You are complete in Him. § Perfect in Christ Jesus.

You were washed, … you were sanctified, … you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. § That you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
