Oh Lord, You're Beautiful!

I'm so excited that I found this video!  It's the first time I've ever heard this live version of "Oh Lord, You're Beautiful" (words and music by Keith Green, performed by Keith Green).  Keith Green was my all-time favorite singer/musician.  I said "was" because he died in a plane crash in 1982 (he was only 28).  He was one of a kind who was totally sold out for Christ.  He lived what he wrote in this song and all his other songs.

"I'm in my 83rd year, but it doesn't necessarily mean I'm wiser or stronger.  It doesn't mean I've done more.  It's not the stretch of life that matters.  It's the depth of life.  It's not how long we live.  It's how we live.  Keith was a man who seemed to live on the edge of eternity.  And he was ready to step into it." ~Leonard Ravenhill spoke of Keith Green after his death (quote taken from "No Compromise: The Life Story of Keith Green" by Melody Green & David Hazard)

Note: Please turn off my music playlist at the bottom of this page before starting the video.

Oh Lord, You're beautiful. Your face is all I seek;
For when Your eyes are on this child, Your love abounds to me.

Oh Lord, my body's tired, but You keep reminding me
Of many holy tireless men who spilled their blood for Thee.

Chorus: I want to take Your Word and shine it all around,
But first help me just to live it Lord.
And if I'm doing well, help me to never make a sound,
Except to give all the glory to You.

Oh Lord, my faith is small, and I need a touch from You.
Your Book of books lies undisturbed, and the prayers from me..too few.

Oh Lord, please light the fire that once burned bright and clear.
Replace the lamp of my first love that's fueled with holy fear.

"Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always." 1 Chronicles 16:11
"When You said, "Seek My Face," my heart said to You, "Your face, Lord, I will seek."" Psalm 27:8
"Let the light of Your face shine upon us, O Lord." Psalm 4:6
"Let Your face shine on Your servant; save me in Your unfailing love." Psalm 31:16
"For the Lord is righteous, He loves justice; upright men will see His face." Psalm 11:7
"You are my portion, O Lord; I have promised to obey Your words.  I have sought Your face with all my heart; be gracious to me according to Your promise." Psalm 119:57-58

Lord, please help me to live by Your Book and be a light that shines brightly for You.  To You alone be the glory!  Your grace and love abound to me.  Thank You, Lord!

Oh, I love Keith Green, and that video was wonderful! I remember driving along on the expressway and having to pull over and write down the name of "There is a Redeemer", it was so lovely.
