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! Written from Solomon’s Songs.
It's good to talk.
