“O my dove,
In the clefts of the rock,
In the covert of the precipice,
Let me see your face,
Let me hear your voice;
For your voice is sweet,
And your form is lovely.”
— Song of Songs 2:14

In verse 14 the Lord refers to the Shulammite as His “dove.” The Lord once said her eyes were like the eyes of a dove. Now she herself becomes a dove. In the eyes of the Lord, she is truly beautiful now. Not only her eyes but also her whole person is pure. We don’t see as the Lord does; we do not think we are like doves. However, the Lord says, “You are like a dove. I am going to work in you and make you a dove.”

Adapted from The Journey of Life, page 188.
