Show Us Something Beautiful

I wrote this because I realized that a lot of the things I ask God for, I've already got and just don't appreciate or see them the way they are.

Show Us Something Beautiful

I exclaim over things that I find beautiful
Things that are special to me
Images pleasant to the eye
Things that are easy to see

Show us something amazing, God
We're tired of the every-day
Show us something amazing, God
Take our breath away
Show us something amazing

A tiny spider spins its web
It never has to learn
From birth it knows its special trade
It has no need for concern
Show us something amazing

Show us something beautiful, God
We need something new
Show us something beautiful, God
Something only you can do
Show us something beautiful

A tiny baby, seconds old
With tiny ears, fingers and toes
Gives a cry announcing life
In God's very image, composed
Show us something beautiful

Give us something wonderful, God
We need something more
Give us something wonderful, God
That we've never seen before
Give us something wonderful

A man stumbling beneath a cross
Beaten, shamed, betrayed
Staggering on to Calvary
Because he loved the Man he'd made
Give us something wonderful

We're ready, God, we're ready
For you, it's an easy task
Just a little miracle
Is that too much to ask?
