The wind in the clouds and the blue in the sky
The sun and the moon and the stars so high

Beautiful – Shawn McDonald

As I look into the stars
I’m pondering how far away they are
How You hold them in Your hands
And still You know this man

What am I, what am I, what am I

As I look off into the distance
Watching the sun roll on by
Beautiful colours all around me, oh
Painted all over the sky
The same Hands that created all of this
They created you and I
What a beautiful God
What a beautiful God

And what am I, that I might be called Your child
What am I, what am I
That You might know me, my King
What am I, what am I
