beautiful – v2

words to describe me, my path
broken, scarred, but useful
adjectives I can relate to
deep wounds of my past
when I have strayed from my path
another word, beautiful,
as I think about my Savior
how He alone redeems my clay
and He makes me useful
how sad what He suffered
how joyful His rising
how beautiful the feet
that carry the words of Jesus
