You're Beautiful



It's always been hard for me to say I'm beautiful.  I mean, really, in the natural looks department, there isn't much there...

Yet He says I'm beautiful!  That we all are!

I'm just beginning to be able to see it and say it, by the power of the Spirit in me. It feels like I am a flower just beginning to open.  Or a little sparrow just about to fly!

Maybe I can like myself.  Maybe I can be happy with me.  Maybe I really do have something beautiful to offer this world - I have a heart full of Him to offer, and that is beautiful!

Lyrics:

Days will come when you don't have the strength
When all you hear is you're not worth anything
Wondering if you ever could be loved
And if they truly saw your heart, they'd see too much

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are his
You're beautiful

Praying that you have the heart to fight
"Cause you are more than what is hurting you tonight
For all the lies you've held inside so long
They are nothing in the shadow of the cross

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are his
You're beautiful.

Before you ever took a breath
Long before the world began
Of all the wonders He possessed
There was one more precious
Of all the earth and skies above
You're the one He madly loves enough to die

You're beautiful
You're beautiful in His eyes
                                                                                   Mercy Me
