05. Beautiful Redemption

Genesis
by Joy Williams



 

I've had my forty days and forty nights at sea
I've had forty years in the wilderness, or so to speak
I've walked with sand from the ocean floor on my feet
To turn and say You left me
I'm a doubting Thomas needing to believe
I'm a perfumed sinner just like Magdalene
I am Judas kissing on Your cheek, eager to deceive
I am all of these
I cry, Father, Father, forgive me
You say, Child, I already have
You are Beautiful
Beautiful Redemption
You are Beautiful
Beautiful Redemption
I'm the guilty thief that's hanging by Your side
And my shame is dying with Your sacrifice
And all my fears come crashing down as I look in Your eyes
I see paradise
Hallelujah (we all, we all, we all fall down)
Hallelujah (we all, we all, we all fall down)
Hallelujah (we all, we all, we all fall down)
Hallelujah (we all, we all, we all fall down)
You are Beautiful
Beautiful Redemption
You are Beautiful
Beautiful Redemption

Behind the Song:
'We were almost done with the album, and it’s the usual thing for a worship song to be added. We tossed some things around, but none of the songs really grabbed me. I started thinking to myself, “If I were going to write a song of worship, what would it look like?” So I went to my laptop and started looking back at some other lyrics and reading through the Bible. I was identifying with doubting Thomas. I wanted to paint a picture that was not pretty and then juxtapose it with who Christ really is – which is beautiful. So this song goes all the way from Old Testament to New Testament. It is my exaltation song to Christ. It’s deeply woven in me, with a lot of vulnerability strung through it.' - Joy Williams
