Musical Monday


I just discovered this song by Joy Williams, and I love it. It's so beautiful. I've added it to my playlist, so if you want to hear it (Joy Williams has a gorgeous voice), just scroll to the very bottom of this page, and click on the song's title.


Beautiful Redemption
by Joy Williams

I've had my forty days and forty nights at sea,
I've had forty years in the wilderness, or so to speak,
I've walked with sand from the ocean floor on my feet,
To turn and say you left me.

I'm a doubting Thomas needing to believe,
I'm a perfumed sinner just like Magdalene,
I'm Judas kissing on your cheek eager to decieve,
I am all of these.

Chorus:
I cry, Father, Father, forgive me
You say, Child, I already have.
You are beautiful,
Beautiful Redemption,
You are Beautiful,
Beautiful Redemption.

I'm the guilty thief that's hanging by your side,
and my shame is dying with your sacrifice,
And all my fears come crashing down
as I look in your eyes,
I see paradise.

Hallelujah (we all, we all, we all fall down) x 4
You are beautiful,
Beautiful Redemption.
You are Beautiful,
Beautiful Redemption.
~~~~~~
Isn't that beautiful? He's already forgiven us, no matter what we've done. No matter how badly we behaved, no matter how greatly we've doubted, no matter how drastically we've strayed from Him...He's forgiven us! All we need to do is "cry 'Father, Father, forgive me!'" That's God's promise, and we can be certain that He will keep it!!
