Wake up
U're beautiful, loved and blessed (Mm)
U feel me? (Think I don't?)

When U found me, I was just a piece of clay
I was formless, U gave me a new name
With the breath of life I now live abundantly
All I needed was the potter's hand and the blood of Calvary (That's right)
But 2 much power can sometimes turn 2 shame (Tell it)
2 much desire sometimes make U feel the same (C'mon)
But 4giveness is how U win the game
I begged 4 truth, now I know the truth and that is when U came

And said I was beautiful, loved and blessed
I'm better than the day b4 cuz U made me confess
That I am beautiful, loved and blessed
When U're free, U're really free indeed
All U gotta do is just plant the seed

A constant battle 2 stay ahead of the game
Is anybody famous when everybody wants fame?
Always tryin' 2 break U down thinkin' that it'll raise 'em up
I just wanna b happy, come take this bitter cup from me
If I were 2 ever write down my life story
I could truly say with all the fame and glory
I was just a piece of clay n need of the potter's hand
Cuz when U whispered n my ear the words I so now understand, oh

Beautiful, loved and blessed
I'm better than the day b4 cuz U made me confess
That I am beautiful, loved and blessed
When U're free, U're really free indeed
All U gotta do is just plant the seed (Oh)

Everything U made U said, "That's good"
B4 the fall of man U said, "That's good"
Every time I walk n faith, that's good
U let me see another day, that's good (Oh)
B4 the earth was made U said, "Támar, I will lead the way and U'll go far"
Knowledge and understanding, understanding is good
And when I wake up n the morning, all I hear n my hood

Is people sayin' that they're beautiful, loved and blessed
Will U rescue me from the darkness?
And now I just must confess that I am beautiful, loved and blessed (Oh, uh)
When U're free, U're free indeed (Whoa)
All U gotta do is just plant the seed

Hey hey hey, wake up, it's a new day (Oh)
Hey hey hey (That's right), wave ur hands n the air and say (Oh)
Hey hey hey, wake up it's a new day (New day, y'all) (Oh)
Hey hey hey, wave ur hands n the air and say (Oh)

Oh beautiful, loved and blessed
U rescued me from the darkness n the wilderness
So I am beautiful, loved and blessed
No matter what the challenge, I'll always pass the test
That's why I am beautiful... (That's why I am...) (Oh)
I don't mean 2 put nobody down
Still I must confess that I am beautiful (That's why I am...)
When U wanna give up, don't cuz U know U always got a friend, oh
That's why I am, that's why I am
That's why I am beautiful, beautiful
That's why I am, that's why I am (Hahaha)
That's why I am beautiful, beautiful
Oh yeah (Oh yeah)
Beautiful, beautiful
4give us
Beautiful, beautiful {repeat}
