song: Oh Lord, You're Beautiful
Monday, February 16 at 9:14 AM
Thanks for stopping by. I'm rather busy today, so I won't be writing anything more than this. Here's a song that's on my heart. I'm not sure if I've posted it before; if I have, that's okay. Keith Green's life and music are a constant source of inspiration. The italicised verses are from his first writing of the song.

Oh Lord, You're Beautiful
Keith Green

Oh Lord, You're beautiful
Your face is all I seek
For when Your eyes are on this child
Your love abounds to me


Oh Lord, You're beautiful
Your face is all I seek
For when Your eyes are on this child
Your grace abounds to me

Oh Lord, my body's tired
But You keep reminding me
Of many holy, tireless men
Who spilled their blood for Thee


I wanna take Your Word and shine It all around
But help me just to live It Lord
And when I'm doing well help me to never make a sound
But to give all the glory to You


Oh Lord, my faith is small
And I need a touch from You
Your Book of books lies undisturbed
And the prayers from me, too few


Oh Lord, please light the fire
That once burned bright and clear
Replace the lamp of my first love
That burns with Holy fear

I wanna to take Your Word and shine it all around
But first help me to just live It Lord
And when I'm doing well, help me to never seek a crown
For my reward is giving glory to You

Oh Lord, You're beautiful
Your face is all I seek
For when Your eyes are on this child
Your faith abounds to me
