Beautiful Things By Gungor

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 out 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 make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

What imagery stands out to you? As the anniversary of covid nears, may we all experience “hope springing up from this old ground.”

 

For further reflection, today we’re reading John 14:1-4 in our community lenten reader.
