Paul once made mention to some saints about “making melody” in their hearts to the Lord. Yesterday while I was home alone and folding laundry for my wife (ten points for me!), I began to sing one of the songs we used to sing when the church was gathering in my town. My spirit was lifted to the Lord in a tremendous way just by singing to Him, so tonight I thought I would share with you the lyrics of one of my favorite songs. I’m not sure of the author, but the tune we always used to sing it to was that of “‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus.” Only this one is called “Captivated by His Beauty.” Don’t just read it, sing it; you’ll enjoy it far more that way. 🙂
1)Have you heard Him, seen Him, known Him?
Is not yours a captured heart?
Chief among ten thousand own Him
Joyful choose the better part
Captivated by His beauty
Worthy tribute haste to bring
Let His peerless worth constrain thee
Crown Him now unrivaled King
2)What has stripped the seeming beauty
From the idols of the earth?
Not a sense of right or duty
But the sight of peerless worth
3)So the crushing of those idols
Was accomplished from the start
By the beaming of His beauty
The unveiling of His heart
4)‘Tis that look that melted Peter
‘Tis that face that Stephen saw
‘Tis that heart that wept with Mary
Can alone from idols draw
5)Draw and win and fill completely
Till the cup o’erflow the brim
What have we to do with idols
Who have companied with Him?
