Beautiful by Phil Wickam Chords

This song is, in a word, beautiful.  The music is wonderful, the message powerful.  How often do we forget to just tell our heavenly Father that, hey, You're Beautiful.  My heart is for worship, if you don't know that already.  The thing I love the most about worship is it's complete and utter intimacy.  You are asking nothing of God but to be with you.  You are saying, "Father, I love you and I just want to be with you because you are so amazing and incredibly beautiful."  The benefit of this is that in God's presence everything that is not of Him must go.  Sickness, disease, poverty, etch.  It is an added benefit that comes when a heart with pure motives desires to be with their Father.  There is no downside to this, but many times life gets in the way and we don't spend enough time in that intimate worship atmosphere to let God's glory fall in such power as to drive those things away.

If I would leave anything on this earth about worship it would be this, "Don't stop when you feel the Spirit, keep going.  Don't stop when you are on your knees because the presence is so intense, no, keep going.  Don't stop when it hurts so good because all the selfish, fleshy parts of you are dying in His presence, no, keep going.  Keep going until there is such a piece about you that you can wrap your hand around it and grip it because that is when the best stuff starts happening."

C                 F
I see Your face in every sunrise
       Am                     G
The colors of the morning are inside Your eyes
C                        F
The world awakens in the light of the day
   Am                    G                       C
I look up to the sky and say You're beautiful

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 You're beautiful

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 You're beautiful

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 You're beautiful

  1. You're right, that song is...beautiful. Thank you for sharing it, I for one really appreciate it. We allow life to get in the way sometimes and forget to praise Him like we should. This came to my inbox at an incredible time. I have three different incurable (by man) diseases and am going through a flare up of one...sitting here feeling really yucky and instead I should be thanking Him and praising Him! Thanks for the kick in the rear!! This message put it all back in perspective for me and snapped me out of my funk. God Bless you and I'm glad He put it in your heart to send this out. I needed it :)
