Beautiful Things out of the dust

Music, suffering

God makes beautiful things out of the dust. God makes beautiful things from our trials of life and suffering. Or we can just suffer, and let it be wasted. I think our participation matters.

This song, Beautiful Things, by Gungor, comes across a little melancholy at first glance. A closer look (or listen) and you can sense the hope rising up in the music and lyrics. It’s my prayer through my current trial, that I will allow God to complete His work in me and make beautiful things from it.

This group, Gungor, is a married couple and their music is incredible! Here are the lyrics:

All this pain

I wonder if I’ll ever find my way

I wonder if my life could really change at all

All this earth

Could all that is lost ever be found

Could a garden come up from this ground at all

You make beautiful things

You make beautiful things out of the dust

You make beautiful things

You make beautiful things out of us

All around

Hope is springing up from this old ground

Out of chaos life is being found in You

You make beautiful things

You make beautiful things out of the dust

You make beautiful things

You make beautiful things out of us

You make me new, You are making me new

You make me new, You are making me new

You are making me new
