Beautiful Lord

As I've been praying through Tyler's death, I listened to my new birthday CD by Leeland. This song spoke profoundly to me as I worked through my grief over such a senseless loss. And when the sun, or should I say Son, broke through the rain clouds this afternoon, I was overcome with God's love for me. Oh Lord, You are beautiful. You are Love. You are Hope. You are Peace. You are Comfort. Thank You for being in control. Help me to hold my life open to Your tender care. And please be with Tyler's family.

Beautiful Lord
words and music by Leeland Dayton

When the storms are raging all around me,
You are the peace that calms my troubled sea.
And when the cares of this world darken my day,
You are the light that shines and shows me the way.

Oh the beauty of Your majesty.
On the cross You showed Your love for me.

Beautiful Lord
Awesome and mighty
I'm captured by this love I see.
Beautiful Lord
Tender and holy
Your mercy drives me to my knees.
It's Your mercy that has made me free
Beautiful Lord.

When my sin is all that I can see
Your grace remains the shelter that I seek.
And when my weakness is all I can give
Your gentle Spirit gives me strength again.
And oh, the beauty of Your majesty
On the cross You showed Your love for me.

And I'm lifted by Your love to sing!
It's Your mercy that has made me free!

You're beautiful, my Lord!
You're beautiful, my Lord!
