In the mirror one day,
I saw a self.
I took a closer look and peered into my soul.
The things I saw?
One more time I looked into the mirror.
This time I saw a redeemed self
This time I saw a beautiful self.
This time I saw, in the background, Jesus.
By his grace he redeemed me.
Now he is making me into
the self I want to be,
the self that I really am.
