Beautiful

The brilliant sun that ends the darkest night is nothing, nothing compared to you
And your brilliant face that shines with glorious light, the one thing that could only be you
Because your eyes have seen my shame, but your mouth still calls my name back to you

The rhythm of the rain that fills the sky is nothing, nothing compared to you
And the rhythm of your heart beating for mine, the one thing that could only be you
Because your love will never change, it will never fade away, always true

You are holy, you are the only beautiful
No one like you, none beside you, you stand alone

The distance from the east to the west is nothing, nothing compared to you
And the distance of your arms always outstretched, the one thing that could only be you
Because your hands once bore my pain and the scars that still remain are reaching through

The movement of the waters of the deep is nothing, nothing compared to you
And the movement of your feet running to me, the one thing that could only be you
Because your steps will lead the way, but even when I stray I find you

You are holy, you are the only beautiful
No one like you, none beside you, you stand alone
And I have seen you in the earth and sky
But still have yet to realize just how beautiful you are

I find you in the sun and I find you in the rain
I find you in the distance and I find you in the waves
You are
