Beauty and the Bold

"Of old hast Thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of Thy hands… The children of Thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before Thee" (Psalm 102:25,28).  "In that day shall the Branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious" (Isaiah 4:2).  "Lord, Thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth… who by… David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?… Grant unto Thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak Thy Word" (Acts 4:24,29). 

The Lord has laid the earth's foundation;
The heavens by His hands were made. 
Behold His beauty in creation
In all the universe displayed! 

Creation's work is beautiful,
Yet by our sin, we were estranged. 
We needed Christ to save our soul
So that our nature could be changed. 

The Lamb of God victorious,  
The Branch of David, and his Root,   
Is beautiful and glorious,
And we, His children, are His fruit! 

O Lord, the prophets had foretold
The beauty of Your sacrifice,
So grant that we may now be bold,
Since we are bought with such a price!
