Beautiful

By Elizabeth Paige Chavoustie

Beautiful are the feet on the mountains

Of him who brings the Gospel of Peace.

 

Beautiful are the footsteps of healing

To bring others their deliverance.

 

Beautiful are the hands that labor

For God’s righteous cause all the day.

 

Beautiful are the hearts of those

Who show the lost sheep how to find their Way.

 

Beautiful is the heart of him

Who rejoices in his sufferings.

 

Beautiful is the harvest sown in tears

To bring a holy offering.

 

Beautiful is the heart of him

Who dances before the Lord.

 

Beautiful are the words of him

Who shares God’s two-edged Sword.

 

 

 

Beautiful is the voice of him

Who sings unto his King.

 

Beautiful is the life that’s lived

As a holy offering.

 

Beautiful are the hands that hold

Nothing back from the Lord.

 

Beautiful is the one who prays

When God answers not a word.

 

Beautiful is the heart that brings

Exceeding joy to his kin.

 

Beautiful is the one who’s washed

And bears no stain of his sin.

 

Beautiful is he who surrenders

And sacrifices all.

 

Beautiful is he who reaches out

So others may not fall.

 

 

Beautiful hands, beautiful eyes,

Beautiful heart, beautiful life.

 

Beautiful are the feet on the mountains

Of him who brings the Gospel of Peace.

 

Yes, beautiful are the feet on the mountains

Of him who brings the Gospel of Peace.
