BEAUTY FOR ASHES

Isa. 61:1 "The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
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."

Perhaps you have noticed,
Perhaps you have seen;
How God works in mysterious ways,
In impossible situations…He'll intervene.

The darkest day…is turned into light,
Our greatest sadness…into our greatest joy;
From tears of sorrow…into happiness,
From defeat…His grace employ.

He gives beauty for ashes,
In each situation of life;
As we trust in His Word,
He puts an end to all strife.

Have you a problem…with no help in sight,
Everything has gone amiss;
Round and round…going nowhere,
It only appears so…on the surface.

He has saved many a sinner,
From the great abyss;
Lifted them to heights…before unknown,
Given hope, when life was meaningless.

He gives beauty for ashes,
For sin…forgiveness;
He's always there, in our despair,
A Friend…to the friendless!
