POEM--NO BEAUTY -- 11/6/11

I have no beauty I can call my own
For beauty is in Jesus alone.
Neither have I strength to bear
All the things that require care
For Jesus is my only strength
It's He I aim to wear.

I have no wisdom I can claim
For Jesus is my wisdom aflame.
I have no knowledge that has worth
Except God's true knowledge of my new birth.
Only Jesus truly knows
And it's He I aim to know on earth.

I have no peace within my breast
Except through Jesus who gives me rest.
I have no joy within my soul
Yet He is my joy, He makes me whole.
Ah, blessed joy and peace
It's He in me will never cease.
