lyrics

Dear little girl,

I hope that you can see...
Just how beautiful I created thee
You're searchin' for a curtain so that you can hide your person,
But I made you with a purpose, don't hide it under the surface

'Cause you're NOT worth less, you're worth more than I could express
And I've been blessed ever since the day I gave you breath
When you were just an infant, an imprint upon my chest
I looked at you from Heaven, and I said that you're the best but still!

You doubt your worth only because of this world…
It's gone astray from knowin' the beauty within a girl but girl!
Open your eyes, and realize who you be
You're precious, a princess, you're beautiful to me

Chorus:

I see you drop to your knees and you pray
Lord make me beautiful in every single way,
But I see your beauty shine every single day,
so believe me when you hear me say

You're beautiful to me!
You're beautiful to me!
You're beautiful to me!
You're beautiful to me! Can't you see?
You're beautiful to me!


Verse 2:

Hey young lady,

It's crazy how much you've changed
ain't it strange? All of a sudden you think you're so plain?
'Cause ever since you paid attention to models and hotties,
it seems you're never satisfied with your own body

You seem scared, self-conscious and unaware,
I can tell that you're impelled 'cause you're compelled to compare
At the magazines up at the flat screen you stare
"If only I had her eyes, if only I had her hair"

I see how you seek to find what makes you unique but you're
unique when you embrace who I created you to be
Don't try to live up to the world's standards of glamor, it'll hurt ya,
If that man don't love you for YOU then he's a boy and he don't deserve ya

It's like a bit of gravity, tuggin' at your heart, when you're lookin' for someone who will love you for who you are
You're a work of art, you seem to wanna erase, but when I create I never make a mistake,
So look no further, the Father.

Sincerely,

Yours truly

And P.S. You're my daughter, now go and embrace your beauty!

Chorus:

I see you drop to your knees and you pray
Lord make me beautiful in every single way,
But I see your beauty shine every single day,
so believe me when you hear me say

You're beautiful to me!
You're beautiful to me!
You're beautiful to me!
You're beautiful to me! Can't you see?
You're beautiful to me!

Bridge:

Inside your heart is where beauty is made to sing
Outer beauty is fading, inner beauty's amazing
And no matter what they say, girl don't let it get inside your head
And just remember what I said, that you're beautiful in my eyes instead!

Chorus:

I see you drop to your knees and you pray
Lord make me beautiful in every single way,
But I see your beauty shine every single day,
so believe me...

You're beautiful to me!
You're beautiful to me!
You're beautiful to me!
You're beautiful to me! Can't you see?
You're beautiful to me!
