What's your Beauty-secret?
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation,
who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!"
Be the beauty; Not for sake of duty’s strict and cheerless hue
But because love bids us shine for Jesus in all that we do
Be the smile, the second miler; be the kind word, helping hand
Be the cup-of-listening server; be a Son-sparkle on sand
Be the arm around a shoulder; be a bedside shining star
Be the flower of the hour by blooming right where you are
Be the person you would wish for when the way of life is hard
Be God’s mercy and compassion; Be the beauty of the Lord
