Something Beautiful

Words and Music by William J. and Gloria Gaither

Key: Eb
Time: 4/4


Eb       Ebdim   Eb           Bb7     Bbdim  Bb7
Something beautiful, something good

  Fm(maj7) Fm7 Bb7  Eb    Eb7
All my confusion He understood;

Ab                                           Eb/Ab    Eb   D/G7  Cm
All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife

Bb/Eb Ab6     Bb/Eb             Bb7                     Eb  Ab  Eb
But he made something beautiful of my life


               Eb                Ebmaj7
If there ever were dreams
                     Eb6          Ebdim
That were lofty and noble
Fm7                                                Bb7
They were my dreams at the start
                                       Fm (maj7)            Fm7
And the hopes for life's best were the hopes
             Bb7           Eb/Ab            Eb   Ebdim  Eb
That I harbored down deep in my heart
                Eb                            Ebmaj7
But my dreams turned to ashes
                Eb7                                         Ab                           Ab6
And my castles all crumbled, my fortune turned to loss
         Cm               F7              Cm7      F7
So I wrapped it all in the rags of life
        Bb/Fm7 Bb6  Bb/Fm  Bb/Eb  Bb7
And laid it at the cross
