about

This song is based out of Ezekiel 16 and Song of Solomon. In Ezekiel you have a baby that has been aborted my her mother (she represents Israel in the story) that is rescued by a man who cleans her up, clothes her in the finest linens and jewelry, and claims her as His wife. This parallels the Shulamite woman in Song of Solomon who declares that though the sun had darkened her skin, making her less fair than the other maidens, her beauty still prevailed. That idea mingled with Ezekiel 16 was such a beautiful picture to me, and I as continued writing this song, it spiraled into an epic picture of the Bride of Christ declaring her connection to her beloved, Christ.

lyrics

Dark am I but lovely
Persecuted, but not abandoned
Lowly and poor
I've been lifted from the ash heap
And crowned His queen

For this is my lover
This is my friend
I belong to Him
His desire is for me

Chosen am I by my beloved
Favored among the fairest of men
Winter has gone and the spring has come
The season of singing has begun

Bone of His blone
Flesh of His flesh
I am His bride
Born from His side
