I was a young wife and new mama when I went to my first "grown up" ladies' Bible study.
It was taught by a retired missionary.
She opened the study with this hymn.
I had never heard it before
and I've never forgotten it since.
I saw the beauty of Jesus in her.
I saw the beauty of God's Word through her teaching.
I was in my early twenties, she was in her seventies, but
I wanted to be like her, because she was like Jesus.
Lyrics: Tom M. Jones
Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me,
All His wonderful passion and purity;
O Thou Spirit divine, May I truly be Thine
Till the beauty of Jesus be seen in me.
Let my wonderful Saviour be seen in me,
His amazing compassion and constancy;
His great love is my goal, By His Spirit’s control
Till my wonderful Saviour be seen in me.
Let the fruit of the Spirit be seen in me,
Grant me grace all sufficient that I may be
True and faithful each day, Ev’ry step of the way.
Pointing souls to the Saviour on Calvary.
