"Beautiful" as written by and Ord....
I was so unique
Now I feel skin deep
I count on the make-up to cover it all
Crying myself to sleep cause I cannot keep their attention
I thought I could be strong
But it's killing me

Does someone hear my cry?
I'm dying for new life

I want to be beautiful
Make you stand in awe
Look inside my heart,
and be amazed
I want to hear you say
Who I am is quite enough
Just want to be worthy of love
And beautiful

Sometimes I wish I was someone other than me
Fighting to make the mirror happy
Trying to find whatever is missing
Won't you help me back to glory

I want to be beautiful
Make you stand in awe
Look inside my heart,
and be amazed
I want to hear you say
Who I am is quite enough
Just want to be worthy of love
And beautiful

You make me beautiful
You make me stand in awe
You step inside my heart, and I am amazed
I love to hear You say
Who I am is quite enough
You make me worthy of love and beautiful

    General CommentI'm not Christian, but I love Beth as well as many other Christian artists for reasons I honestly can't explain. This song reminds me of the worst times of my life, but not in a bad way.

    General CommentThis describes how I have felt all my teenage years!! Every girl just wants to be beautiful and attract attention. I think the one to makes her beautiful is god, only he can completely.

    General CommentThis song totally describes the heart of women. Before we are lied to by Satan, we are okay and complete in God, but for some reason, we begin to question ourselves, and then God has to step in and remind us that He thinks we're beautiful. He is enthralled by our beauty (Psalm 45:11).

    General CommentI think every girl will go through this. They just want people to say that they are worthy, and they believe being beautiful is the way to make this work.

    "Fighting to make the mirror happy."
    Such an intense line, and this song isn't very famous so it isn't heard and appreciated like it should be. But this song is absolutely amazing, thank you Bethany.

    General CommentMy teacher always makes a slideshow for the 8th grade class at my middle school. When we graduated this song was played to all the girls' pictures and we all cried. This song is so amazing and when she says "YOU make me beautiful, you make me stand in awe, you step inside my heart and I am amazed" its so true. God thinks you are beautiful and he doesnt make junk! Helped me a lot!
