Precious in God's sight

Precious in God's sight you are,
Divinely made in God's delight,
endowed with beauty wove deep within,
brighter than the darkest sin.

Wondrous in God's sight you are,
though fallen deep, though fallen far,
still full-graced to reach the stars,
to break all chains and burst all bars.

Beloved in God's sight you are,
Whose laser vision probes the years,
Who knows the pain, the lonely fears,
and weeps before your hidden tears.

Claimed in God's sight you are,
Who jealously formed you of His seed.
None can claim your special place
or rob you of your given grace.

Free in God's sight you are,
to rise in rainbow'ed glory,
to claim the God-light in your soul
and tell the world your story.
