Isaiah 61:3King James Version (KJV)
3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

Beauty for Ashes

From ashes to ashes and dust to dust

God brings new life and rest to us

Open your heart and let him in

A precious jewel you are to him…

Out of the ashes, beauty shall rise

No fear or disgrace all humanness dies

Into the presence of the glorious King

Songs of redemption…our soul doth sing…

Ashes fall and cover the hill

God is faithful child, just stand still…

Victory is heard around the throne

One day you’ll see him, may not be long…

Until that day…bury the ashes, blow the dust away

Risen, in beauty there’s no decay

Ashes, ashes, go away…

Beauty for ashes…is yours today!

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
