Top Ten Christian Songs About Beauty

I am the mother of a 4 year old daughter. Right now, she believes she is a beautiful princess, gorgeous in her Momma and Daddy's eyes. She is secure. Confident in who she is. But I worry about the future, when she will step into a world of images and media that tell her that her she must fit into a certain mold to be considered beautiful. My best response is to place in her heart, from a young age, a certainty that she is loved by a Heavenly Father who created her uniquely and perfectly beautiful. The message I try to send to her, is that beauty comes from a heart that knows God and that cannot be lost or taken away, regardless of what world says. The list of songs below echoes that message and helps me when I need my own reminder. I hope they do the same for you as well.

10) Every Bit of Lovely- Jamie Grace

Beautiful Reminder Lyric-

Don’t you know that you're God’s original work of art, yes you are

So don’t ever let them tell you that you’re less than wonderful

Cause you’re a one and only

9) Beautiful- Bethany Dillon

Beautiful Reminder Lyric-

You step inside my heart, and I am amazed

I love to hear You say

Who I am is quite enough

You make me worthy of love and beautiful

8) Mirror-Barlow Girl

Beautiful Reminder Lyric-

Mirror I am seeing a new reflection

I'm looking into the eyes

of He who made me

And to Him I have beauty beyond compare

7) Beautiful, Beautiful- Francesca Battistelli

But I have just begun

Changing by your grace

5) Beautiful History- Plumb

Beautiful Reminder Lyric-

Whenever you run away

Whenever you lose your faith

It's just another stroke of the pen on the page

A lonely ray of hope is all that you'll need to see a beautiful history

4)Keep Me Near- Rend Collective Experiment

You make beautiful things

You make beautiful things out of us

2)Gold-Britt Nicole

Beautiful Reminder Lyric-

This, this is for all the girls, boys all over the world

Whatever you've been told, you're worth more than gold

So hold your head up high, it's your time to shine

From the inside out it shows, you're worth more than gold

Final Thoughts: Sometimes, while she is playing in her room, I hear my daughter singing to herself. I place my head against her door to get a better listen, and my heart swells when I hear her sing the words, "You're God's original work of art!", while she brushes her Barbie's hair. They may be but words, but every time she sings them, they impress upon her a little message, a tiny reminder, of her prettiness in the eyes of her Father. She sings, and she remembers, what the world can never take away from her: God's love. Try as I might, I can't think of anything more beautiful.

Please let me know any songs we should add to our list, and please, don't forget just how beautiful you are, exactly the way you are.
