Sunday Hymnary: “More Beautiful” by Ben Everson

This is a different type of song than I normally post for Sunday Hymnary.  Our friend Ben Everson wrote this and graciously gave permission for me to feature it here on my blog.  It is a testimony song, with an important message: God can make all things new.

“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.” Isa 61:3

oldhymnalWhen I was small,

Just a little boy,

I had twinkling lights

On a perfect toy.

But one day I ruined everything,

There was no one who understood.

Who would know my world had spun backwards

No one who could.

But my father took that little toy,

I had broken out of doors,

He replaced all the lights with new ones

That were brighter than before.

More beautiful than it could have ever been,

God picks up broken pieces

And makes them whole again.

What man may mean for evil,

Our God can use for good.

God mends broken hearts,

And broken people,

Like He always said he would.

She was full of hopes

And so full of dreams,

You’d have thought she was

A perfect queen.

But one day she ruined everything,

Who’d have known her world had spun backwards

No one who could.

But God took up her broken life,

As He’s done with others before,

Now she’s a precious pastor’s faithful wife,

She can live in joy once more.

More beautiful than she would have ever been,

God picks up broken pieces

And makes them whole again.

What man may mean for evil,

Our God can use for good.

God mends broken hearts,

And broken people,

Like He always said he would.
