Beautiful Things

I heard this song for the first time at the funeral of a beautiful 10 year old boy who used to ride with us.  He passed just 2 months after William.  It was hard to go to the funeral and I knew there was nothing I could say to make anything better for his parents, but I also know how much it means to a parent for others to show their love and support during such a terrible time.  To know that their child was loved and meant something to others.  To know that he won't be forgotten.  Priceless.

I do not see what beauty could possibly come from William's death, but I hope and pray that God will  redeem the ashes of my life into something beautiful.
Lyrics:
All this pain
I wonder if I’ll ever find my way
I wonder if my life could really change at all
All this earth
Could all that is lost ever be found
Could a garden come up from this ground at all

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

All around
Hope is springing up from this old ground
Out of chaos life is being found in You

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

You make me new, You are making me new
You make me new, You are making me new
You are making me new

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

You make me new, You are making me new
You make me new, You are making me new
