From the recording Beyond the Veil
Men today buy paintings a great fortune they'll pay
They call them a masterpiece, they are priceless they say.
But I have a picture that the world cannot own,
A more beautiful painting than they’ve ever known.
A picture of a lovelier Jesus,
than any artist on earth has ever painted before.
And the scars that I can see were the marks made by me.
And the sin that I committed was the cross that He bore.
Close your eyes now and pray and paint on your mind,
this beautiful stairway that we all can climb.
At the top stands the one who bore all our shame,
yesterday and forever He is always the same.
The love on the face of this Wonderful One,
shines down that great stairway more bright than the sun.
I see Him hold out His hand in every prayer that I pray
and my burdens grow lighter Every step of the way.
If you’re searching for something, if by sin you are blind
You can find it in Jesus the Savior Divine
Just let Him cleanse you from sin
Then I know you will see,
This beautiful Savior that’s so precious to me.
