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
