Face is of a Beauty

© Steve Gascoyne

Your face is of a beauty I can’t picture
And a thousand words can’t describe your loving smile
I watch you travel miles through this life’s dark adventure
Travelling upstream against the current I watch you go
As you grow tired
And this pain was all you knew
And yet you still smiled
Is that why I love you so?

I see your photo smiling from the sideboard
And I think of you and when you were a child
I’ve cried the silent stream that runs to your pillow
You looked up, the tears were running down your face
I tried to wipe them
But they were cried many years ago
Disillusion and disappointment
Now you’ve got to let them go

Chorus 1:
Don’t know why I love you so
I can’t get it out of my mind
It picks me up and throws me down
Makes me feel kind of funny inside
But even though it hurts me so
One thing I can’t deny
That this love, oh! this love’s the best love that I’ve found

Now in the garden a young man he was crying
And as He prayed, the blood fell to the ground
He knew His fate, He knew that he could save us
He turned around and found His friends asleep on the ground

He had to leave them
It all happened years ago
But at that time they did not know
To what lengths His love would go
(Now I ask you)
Is there anywhere in this world where my Lord’s love can’t go?
Or a mountain He could not melt down to the sea?
For I was lost, hurt, upset and so unhappy
That He found me and gave His love for me

Can I deny it and say that it’s not true?
To say that He never loved me, believing the lies I once knew?

Chorus 2:
Don’t know why I love Him so
I can’t get it out of my mind
It picks me up and throws me down
Makes me feel kind of funny inside
But even though it hurts me so
One thing I can’t deny
That this love, oh! this love’s the best thing that I’ve found
