12. Beautiful One (Reprise)

When Silence Falls
by Tim Hughes



 

Wonderful, so wonderful
Is Your unfailing love
Your cross has spoken mercy over me
No eye has seen, no ear has heard
No heart could fully know
How glorious, how beautiful you are!

Beautiful One I love You
Beautiful One I adore
Beautiful One my soul must sing

Powerful, so powerful
Your glory fills the skies
Your mighty works displayed for all to see
The beauty of Your majesty
Awakes my heart to sing
How marvellous, how wonderful You are

You opened my eyes to Your wonders anew
You captured my heart with this love
Because nothing on earth is as beautiful as You

My soul, my soul must sing
My soul, my soul must sing
My soul, my soul must sing
Beautiful One

Behind the Song:
'I wrote Beautiful One while I was on holiday. We had been ministering in Australia and had a few days off at the Great Barrier Reef. I read that passage in Isaiah that talks about the Messiah as having no beauty that would attract us to Him; nothing to make us think how incredible He was. That description of Him as the suffering servant really struck me, because we often talk about Jesus being glorious, awesome, incredible. He is the Son of God - all knowing, all conquering, all powerful. What humility! He gave up everything to come walk among us on the earth. We would have passed Him on the street and not thought anything of who He was. But we know how beautiful He is, and we often sing about that attribute in more of an intimate, slow, tender way. I thought to sing Beautiful One as a strong, powerful statement, in a more upbeat, declarative way was a wonderful thing that we as Christians could do.' - Tim Hughes
