Chapter 5/6 Self Emancipations, Self Help, and Mutual Aid Societies: The Dorcas,  Sarah M. Douglass and Sarah Smith The Black Beauty

“Black, I am, oh! daughters fair,”
But my beauty is most rare;
Black, indeed, appears my skin,
Beauteous, comely, all within:
Black, when by affliction press’d
Beauteous, when in Christ I rest;
Black, by sin’s defiling flood.
Beauteous, wash’d in Jesus’ blood:
Black, I am in mine own eyes,
Beauteous, in my Lord’s I rise;
Black I am to men ’tis true;
Beauteous, in the angel’s view:
Black, if Jesus frowns awhile,
Beauteous, when I see him smile;
Black, while in the tomb I lie,
Beauteous, when I mount the sky!
