“Beautiful For Me”

Posted on February 2nd, 2011

The Wednesday Wisdom Well

This well serves a unique drink:
Words that refresh and cause you to think.

As you know, I am a lover of words. There are times when I read an author’s writings or hear a songwriter’s lyrics, and my heart or mind is deeply affected. I thought I would share these wise words each Wednesday. I pray they encourage you as well.

“Beautiful For Me” by Nichole Nordeman
from Veggie Tale’s Sweetpea Beauty—A Girl After God’s Own Heart

Every girl young and old has to face her own reflection
Twirl around, stare it down
What’s the mirror gonna say
With some luck, you’ll measure up
But you might not hold a candle to the rest
“Is that your best?” says the mirror to the mess
But there’s a whisper in the noise
Can you hear a little voice
and he says

Has anybody told you you’re beautiful?
You might agree if you could see what I see
Oh ‘Cuz everything about you is incredible
You should have seen me smile the day that I made you beautiful for me

If it’s true beauty lies in the eye of the beholder
What my life and what’s inside to give him something to behold
I want a heart that’s captivating
I wanna hear my Father say

Has anybody told you you’re beautiful?
You might agree if you could see what I see
Oh ‘Cuz everything about you is incredible
You should have seen me smile the day that I made you beautiful for me
Close your eyes
Look inside
Let me see the you that you’ve been trying to hide
Long ago, I made you so very beautiful
So I ought to know you’re beautiful

Has anybody told you you’re beautiful?
You might agree if you could see what I see
Yeah ‘Cuz everything about you is incredible
You should have seen me smile the day that I made you beautiful
You’re so beautiful
Beautiful for me
So beautiful for me
Has anybody told you?
