Bringing beauty to this land,
So you cover our sins with forgiveness
Bringing beauty to the inner man.
As the metamorphosis of the ugly worm
Changes into a beautiful butterfly,
So sinners change with the beauty of the Lord
Stepping into His life-giving light.
As the forest fire rages through the trees
Turning everything charred and black,
So new growth appears from beneath for all to see
Bringing new life back.
As when there is only sadness and despair
With no hope or belief,
So the Book of Heaven can bring new life for all,
Healing the hearts that choose to believe.
