Beauty for Ashes

I just had to share this song by Shane and Shane called “Beauty for Ashes” with you as it has been on replay all week at my desk as it has truly spoken to my heart. It speaks of how God can take any situation and make it something beautiful. Because of His undying love and His unending mercy we have the opportunity to exchange our ashes for something beautiful.

Lyrics by Shane & Shane:

Beauty for ashes
A garment of praise for my heaviness
Beauty for ashes take this heart of stone
and make it Yours

Chorus
I delight myself in the riches affair
trading all that I have
for all that is better
a garment of praise for my heaviness
You are the greatest taste
Your the riches of faith

Beauty for ashes
A garment of praise for my heaviness
Beauty for ashes
take this heart of stone and make Yours
make it Yours

Bridge
You are better
So much better than all the world
Lord, You are better
You taste better
So much better
Yeah

based on Psalm 63 and Isaiah 61
