Beauty For Ashes

Out of the ashes of life’s tragedies
Out of the ashes of hatred and need
Out of the ashes of life lived alone
Out of the ashes of love never known

Beauty arises, turn now to Him
Beauty arises, admit to your sins
Beauty arises, receive from above
Beauty arises, dwell in His love

Out of the ashes of life once destroyed
Out of the ashes of tears long denied
Out of the ashes of hope never shown
Out of the ashes of love never known

Beauty arises in His embrace
Beauty arises, showered with grace
Beauty arises in every hour
Beauty arises, lived in His power
