Beauty for Ashes

Isaiah 61:3 King 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!
