Shine it all around

February 23, 2011 at 1:44 pm (Music)

So lately I have been listening to a beautiful song written by Warren Barfield. The late Keith Green recorded the song and apparently made it popular. Sad thing is: I had never heard of Keith Green until I heard this song.
My wonderful husband and his friend Matthew spent about ten minutes explaining the impact that he made on the gospel music industry.
As Joseph, my husband, put it: “He was a Jesus Freak before being a Jesus Freak was cool.”

For me, the song, “Oh Lord, You’re Beautiful” has a tremendous amount of significance. I wish I could put into words the meaning this song holds for me. Maybe one day I will. Until then, I will leave you with the video as well as the lyrics to this song.

Oh Lord, you’re beautiful,
Your face is all I seek,
For when your eyes are on this child,
Your grace abounds to me.

Oh Lord, you’re beautiful,
Your face is all I seek,
For when your eyes are on this child,
Your grace abounds to me.

I want to take your word and shine it all around.
But first help me to just, live it Lord.
And when I’m doing well, help me to never seek a crown.
For my reward is giving glory to you.

Oh Lord, please light the fire,
That once burned bright and clear.
Replace the lamp of my first love,
That burns with Holy fear

I want to take your word and shine it all around.
But first help me to just, live it Lord.
And when I’m doing well, help me to never seek a crown.
For my reward is giving glory to you.

Oh Lord, you’re beautiful,
Your face is all I seek,
For when your eyes are on this child,
Your grace abounds to me.
Oh Lord, you’re beautiful,
Your face is all I seek,
For when your eyes are on this child,
Your grace abounds to me.
