Words and music: Keith Green

O LORD YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

O [C] Lord, you're [F] beau[C]ti[G]ful, [F]
[G] Your [C] face is [F] all [C] I [G] seek;
for [Am] when Your [E7] eyes are [Am] on [G] this child,
[C] Your [F] grace [C] a[G]bounds to [F] me.

O Lord, please light the fire
that once burned bright and clear;
replace the lamp of my first love
that burns with holy fear!

[C] I want to [F] take [C] Your [Dm] word [C] and [G] shine it all
a[C]round,
but first help me [F] just to [D] live it [Gsus] Lord! [G]
[C] And when I'm [F] doing [Dm] well,
help [C] me to [G] never seek a [E7] crown,
for my re[Am]ward is [G] giving [F] glo[G]ry to [C] You. [F-C-G]

O Lord, you're beautiful,
Your face is all I seek;
for when Your eyes are on this child,
Your grace abounds to me.
