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 out 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
Oh, 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
(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
Oh, You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

Oh, 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

    General CommentI can't believe this is the first comment. This song is fabulous. And it is obvious, that it talks about the great things that God does for us.
    God creates beautiful things. He makes beautiful things out of dust!

    God bless everyone. Come unto God! See the light! xoxox <3

    My InterpretationWho hasn't felt broken, dirty or worthless? This song is a beautiful reminder that God can and will take us and make beautiful things. Beautiful.

    General CommentSo this is about the story of the Fall of mankind and the promise of salvation through Jesus. First, in Genesis mankind is created out of dust when the breath of God is breathed into him/her. A beautiful thing. But mankind turns from God and looses that original innocence.

    But God calls mankind back, providing redemption through Jesus Christ--baptism (born anew), and through faith and grace which gives mankind the capacity to love selflessly, we are made anew: "Behold, I make all things new", says Jesus (Revelation). A beautiful thing.

    Peace.
