ALTOGETHER LOVELY (Song Lyrics)

rose flower beautiful
Chorus
Altogether lovely
These words bring sweet release
From burdened chains of hopelessness
They bring me to my knees
Altogether
Lovely

Amidst the dying embers
In a heart that had turned cold
The warmth has been rekindled
With love, life breathes into old

I cannot see my way out
The worn path, my feet have torn
But then a heavenly voice
Why do you look so forlorn?

Chorus
Altogether lovely
These words bring sweet release
From burdened chains of hopelessness
They bring me to my knees
Altogether
Lovely

I’ve lost my light’s joyfulness
And blue skies have faded grey
The songbird no longer sings
The blossoms refuse to stay

And everything pulls me down
And I’m weary of the same
I long to see the sunshine
Participate in the game

Chorus
Altogether lovely
These words bring sweet release
From burdened chains of hopelessness
They bring me to my knees
Altogether
Lovely

But then Your word entwines me
And draws me in line again
Oh! How I’ve missed its beauty
It was hidden beneath pain

And it’s beautiful, so lovely
Bringing comfort to my heart
Now I see the tapestry
The flaws which tore us apart

Chorus
Altogether lovely
These words bring sweet release
From burdened chains of hopelessness
They bring me to my knees
Altogether
Lovely

Holes of every description
Pride, defeat, despair, all mine
Kept me from feeling Your love
Love so amazing, divine

Love so amazing, divine
Flowing freely now in me
Words from heaven, life renewed
So absolutely lovely

Chorus
Altogether lovely
These words bring sweet release
From burdened chains of hopelessness
They bring me to my knees
Altogether
Lovely
