How Beautiful

Original lyrics by Twila Paris
Adapted by Seth Blundell

Verse 1
How beautiful the Bridegroom is,
The Pearl of Great Price, Perfect Holiness.
How beautiful and pure is He!
Before Him are splendor and majesty!

Chorus
How Beautiful
How Beautiful
How Beautiful is the Glory of Christ

Verse 2
How beautiful the Love of the Lamb
To seek us and find us and restore us to Him
How beautiful His precious blood,
That washed us completely and made us His own!

Chorus
How Beautiful
How Beautiful
How Beautiful is the Love of Christ

Bridge
And this is love, that He gave
of His own life when we had strayed
That He may clothe us with robes unstained
that we may be His Bride…
Jesus has made us white.

Verse 3
How beautiful, The Bride of Christ!
For whom He comes leaping over mountains and heights
How beautiful in light she stands
Adorned for her Husband, who says “Here I am!”

Chorus
How Beautiful
How Beautiful
How Beautiful is the Bride of Christ!

Verse 4
How beautiful, the two made one!
What God has united shall not be undone.
How beautiful — profound mystery!
That we should partake of Christ’s love for His sheep.

Chorus
How Beautiful
How Beautiful
How Beautiful is this Union in Christ!
