lyrics

Saved By Beauty

Some lives have been saved by supermen
Some lives have been saved with a touch
Some lives have been lifted from the very jaws of death
And gently returned, breathing breath

Some lives have been saved by bravery
Some lives have been saved with a word
Some lives have been preserved by a servant doing his duty
But mine was saved by beauty

And her voice sings true and clear to my little boy ear
Singing songs whose perfect words are the bright wings of birds
And my soul, having heard its sweet verse and refrain….
Can no longer fear pain, forgot how to complain
So now let Beauty rain on us all

Beauty's soft-falling rain stills the tempest of pain
Making us sure that there really is purity
Grace and security, meant for us all
And her mountain decrees that death fall to its knees
While God's voice like a breeze sings on
