Beauty & the Heart

by Chris McCombs

Original Language English

Weeping, cracking open
Falling to our knees
That is the Heart's response
To Beauty

If we are not wiped-out by beauty
It's a sign that we need more time in the oven
The knees have not been made ready
For what the Heart will soon bring
