Captivating Beauty

Captivating beauty,
Deep mystery to be explored
This is the essence of Eve's daughters
Reflective of the Lord

The crown of God's creation,
Her desire is to be sought
She is desperately needed;
For intimacy, she was wrought

The Garden was her homeland
A place of glory and of rest
Now she strives to find her way there,
To life abundant and God-blessed

Unveil your heart, beloved
And shimmer with all your power
For our Creator delights in you
This is your finest hour

Zion's Future Glory

Sing, barren woman;   Give birth to jubilation   For through your offspring's seed   Will come the longed-for consolation...
