Beauty for ashes,
He’s longing for an exchange.
He wants to pump life back into you,
And heal you of your pain.
So your eyes are opened,
And tears are dried,
Joy and Life He’ll give you,
Pushing hopelessness aside!
You’ve been through much heartache,
Though down a path paved with desire
Now He’s beckoning you to Him
To seek something… Someone higher.
He is the One,
Who has the love you’ve missed
He is the One,
Who for __ years you’ve…
But now your Holy Bridegroom
Is longing to take your hand.
So He can speak Truth into your heart
To help you understand
That He will still give you His mercy
Grace–that came at a high price
Crown of thorns, 39 lashes
Ridicule, His blood, His life.
This is no fairytale,
But the Truth of what He gave
And still counted it all joy
Saved not merely from hell,
But a life ruled by sin
Sin leads to momentary pleasures
But even that has its end
Saved to live. Saved to experience joy.
Saved to be a blessing to this world,
That satan came to steal, kill,destroy!
THIS is the year of the great exchange
Beauty for your ashes
Sunshine IN your rain
You know something has to give
This time GIVE Him your all
So that you can really live,
Will you answer His patient call…
Come exchange what’s in your hand?
Let it go so you can receive.
It’s not easy, He understands.
But He has what you really need.
You’ve said: “Meaningless, meaningless,
Everything is meaningless”
But Jesus is the Way, the Life
Remember your Creator
In the days of your youth (Ecclesiastes 12:)
Turn to Him
Surrendering your past
He can give you beauty for your ashes
The great exchange at last
