Beautiful

I've been listening to MercyMe's "The Generous Mr. Lovewell" a lot these days.  (You can find it here for download from Amazon.)  These guys are so inspired and it's hard to say what is more amazing, the lyrics or the music.  One song that really speaks to me is "Beautiful" (also available for individual download here.)  I don't have much to say about it, because the lyrics speak for themselves:

The days will come when you don't have the strength
When all you hear is you're not worth anything
Wondering if you ever could be loved
And if they truly saw your heart they'd see too much

You're beautiful, you're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this 
You're beautiful, you're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are His
You're beautiful

I'm praying that you have the heart to find
'Cause you are more than what is hurting you tonight
For all the lies you've held inside so long
And they are nothing in the shadow of the cross

You're beautiful, you're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this 
You're beautiful, you're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are His
You're beautiful

Before you ever took a breath
Long before the world began
Of all the wonders He possessed
There was one more precious
Of all the earth and skies above
You're the one He madly loves
Enough to die

You're beautiful, you're beautiful, in His eyes

You're beautiful, you're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this 
You're beautiful, you're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are His
You're beautiful
