HOW BEAUTIFUL 
from Twila Paris’ A Heart That Knows You 
             Words by Twila Paris        (C) Star Song  (1992) 
This song is best left to the pianist but, with a nylon string
classical guitar, a flat pick, a slower tempo and with some chord
modifications, it sounds pretty on the guitar also.  If anybody
has a version closer to the CD, please help me out. 
Peace,

How beautiful, the hands that served.  The wine and the bread, and the sons of the earth.

How beautiful, the feet that walked.  The long dusty roads, and the hill to the cross.

How beautiful, the heart that bled.  That took all my sin    and bore it instead. 

    D      A         G     D            G          D         E7         A 
How beautiful, the tender eyes.  That choose to forgive and never despise.

And as He laid down His life.  We offer this sacrifice.  That we will live, just as He died. 

 D          G              D           D         G         D 
Willing to pay to pay the price.      Willing to pay the price.

How beautiful, the radiant bride.  Who waits for her Groom with His light in her eyes.

How beautiful,  when humble hearts give.  The fruit of pure lives so that others may live. 

    G      D              G      A               G      A                 A       Bsus4

BlueButterfly - 2004-10-21

I'm supposed to be singing this in a wedding in a little over a week, and although i'll be singing to piano (and possible harp), it's nice to see that someone put the chords out. I only have one new chord to learn because i'm not singing into the key change :o) thanx!!!!


CityofGod - 2005-02-23

Awesome... I recently sang this for a wedding as well (must be popular;) and it was with piano accompanist... nonetheless, I loved having the chords (and the LYRICS eeeeesh) so that I didn't have to run the CD a million times to learn it!
