The song I walked down the aisle to was Phil Wickham’s “You’re Beautiful.” In general, I don’t like most Christian songs–as they can seem shallow and often repetitive (but that is a different topic for a different day). This song is different… and something that I have been needing to be reminded of as I go throughout my day as of late.
The lyrics speak of more than beauty. They speak of God’s glory–His Creation, His Power, His Sufficiency, His Love, His Sacrifice, and His Promise. Listening to this song, I am reminded of the true meaning of this life… I don’t know what you are going through but whatever it is, know that there is life beyond it all. Jesus paid the price. Jesus holds to his promises for eternity–and He is calling you to be his bride. He is greater than all the tasks, busyness, and messiness this life holds. He simply asks us to trust in Him for our most important task–life and eternity.
Good Night. xoxo.
I see Your face in every sunrise
The colors of the morning are inside Your eyes
The world awakens in the light of the day
I look up to the sky and say
I see Your power in the moonlit night
Where planets are in motion and galaxies are bright
We are amazed in the light of the stars
It’s all proclaiming who You are
I see You there hanging on a tree
You bled and then you died and then you rose again for me
Now You are sitting on Your heavenly throne
Soon we will be coming home
When we arrive at eternity’s shore
Where death is just a memory and tears are no more
We’ll enter in as the wedding bells ring
Your bride will come together and we’ll sing
I see Your face, I see Your face
I see Your face, You’re beautiful
