Beauty Will Rise

Album: Beauty Will Rise (2009)
  • It was the day the world went wrong
    I screamed til my voice was gone
    And watched through the tears as everything
    Came crashing down
    Slowly panic turns to pain
    As we awake to what remains
    And sift through the ashes that are left
    Behind

    But buried deep beneath
    All our broken dreams
    We have this hope

    Out of these ashes, beauty will rise
    And we will dance among the ruins
    We will see Him with our own eyes
    Out of these ashes, beauty will rise
    For we know, joy is coming in the morning,
    In the morning, beauty will rise

    So take another breath for now,
    And let the tears come washing down,
    And if you can't believe I will believe
    For you.

    Cuz I have seen
    The signs of spring!
    Just watch and see:

    Out of these ashes, beauty will rise
    And we will dance among the ruins
    We will see Him with our own eyes
    Out of these ashes, beauty will rise
    For we know, joy is coming in the morning,
    In the morning,

    I can hear it in the distance
    And it's not too far away.
    It's the music and the laughter
    Of a wedding and a feast.
    I can almost feel the hand of God
    Reaching for my face
    To wipe the tears away, and say,
    "It's time to make everything new."

    "Make it all new"

    This is our hope.
    This is the promise.
    This is our hope.
    This is the promise.
    That it would take our breath away
    To see the beauty that's been made
    Out of the ashes,
    Out of the ashes,
    That it would take our breath away
    To see the beauty that's been made
    Out of the ashes,
    Out of the ashes,

    Out of these ashes, beauty will rise
    And we will dance among the ruins
    We will see Him with our own eyes
    Out of this darkness, new life will shine
    And we'll know the joy is coming in the morning,
    In the morning,beauty will rise!

    Oh, beauty will rise
    Oh, beauty will rise
    Oh, oh, oh, beauty will rise
    Oh, oh, oh, beauty will rise
    Oh, oh, oh, beauty will rise Writer/s: Steven Chapman
