Late have I loved You....

late have i loved You
o Beauty ever ancient ever new
late have i loved You
You were within me but I was away
there within of late
i searched for You
in my un-loveliness
and You touched me

st augustine

I always loved this of St Augustine. Reminds me of "the sinner's prayer" because a sinner feels this upon return to his senses and repentance....that how beautiful is the Lord, how awesome! How could I have missed this beauty all those years I was steeped in sin?
