It is always a pleasure to be called beautiful by someone that loves us. But there is no greater, deeper, satisfying delight than knowing God loves not only our appearance but is pleased with us in every way. Because of Jesus sacrifice in our behalf we are indeed as the apple of his eye.
Beautiful in God’s Eyes
You are beautiful just as you are; you are unique in every way;
Your eyes, your smile and your voice as you lift praise.
Your heart, your laugh and the way you walk,
Your facial expressions when you talk.
I see the sweet motives and unselfish dedication.
I hear the thoughts before you speak and the thoughtful hesitations.
You are lovely in the Father’s sight for he chooses to see,
His Son through his blood for eternity.
The sound of your voice is music in his ear.
Your touch when ministering to the weak, he draws near.
God is glorified at your offering to serve, your beauty shines bright,
Never fear, when you are his you cause him great delight.
Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken;
neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate:
but thou shalt be called Hephzibah,
and thy land Beulah:
for the Lord delighteth in thee,
and thy land shall be married.
