Oh, the beauty of the ashes
When we realize our hearts are new.
Painful things surround us,
But Your love is in us,
Holding, forgiving, ever true.
Let us help those who need us,
And not turn our faces from those in despair.
The lion roars and the earth is shaken,
And yet our God is ever more.
Let our hearts be light,
His truth surrounds us,
His joy fills our souls with glee.
A strange word, for so many have fallen,
But the Lord is ever in our midst.
Let us never feel forsaken
Let our courage rest in Thee,
You are God over these circumstances,
You alone know our destiny.
