Steven Curtis Chapman-Beauty Will Rise

It was the day the world went wrong

I screamed til my voice was gone

And watched through the tears as everything

Came crashing down

Slowly panic turns to pain

As we awake to what remains

And sift through the ashes that are left behind



But buried deep beneath

All our broken dreams

We have this hope:



Out of these ashes... beauty will rise

And we will dance among the ruins

We will see Him with our own eyes

Out of these ashes... beauty will rise

For we know joy is coming in the morning...

In the morning beauty will rise



So take another breath for now

And let the tears come washing down

And if you can't believe I will believe for you.



Cuz I have seen

The signs of spring!

Just watch and see:



Out of these ashes... beauty will rise

And we will dance among the ruins

We will see Him with our own eyes

Out of these ashes... beauty will rise

For we know joy is coming in the morning...

In the morning...



I can hear it in the distance

And it's not too far away.

It's the music and the laughter


Of a wedding and a feast.

I can almost feel the hand of God

Reaching for my face

To wipe the tears away and say

"It's time to make everything new."



"Make it all new"



This is our hope.

This is the promise.

This is our hope.

This is the promise.

That it would take our breath away

To see the beauty that's been made

Out of the ashes...

Out of the ashes...

That it would take our breath away

To see the beauty that's been made

Out of the ashes...

Out of the ashes...



Out of these ashes... beauty will rise

And we will dance among the ruins

We will see Him with our own eyes

Out of this darkness... new life will shine

And we'll know the joy is coming in the morning...

In the morning...beauty will rise!



Oh Beauty will rise

Oh Beauty will rise

Oh oh oh Beauty will rise

Oh oh oh Beauty will rise

Oh oh oh Beauty will rise



It was the day the world went wrong

I screamed til my voice was gone

And watched through the tears as everything
