I was ashamed You call me beautiful

I love this guy (Anthony Skinner). His album 'Forever and a Day' is an awesome worship album. It has some of my favourite songs at the moment on it. I was having a flick through youtube and came across him doing a live version of the title track. I love the start when he gives a testimony of God healing him of a heart defect. Check it out.

I was afraid, your love set me free
I was in debt, you paid the price for me
I was hurt, you took away my pain
I was alone, till you called my name

I was broken, you mended me
Before I was, you loved me
You healed my body and you made me whole
No matter what I do, you don’t let go

I will sing to the king, I am the ransomed one
How I love your holy name,
Holy to the lamb who was slain
When I laugh, when I cry,
You are the reason why
How I want, to be with you, forever and a day

When I go to bed, you are near
When I wake up, you are there
When I play guitar, you are here
When I walk in faith, you’re everywhere

You catch and save every tear I cry
You journal everyday, all about my life
Your love for me, reaches to the sky
I am yours and you are mine

I was ashamed you called me beautiful (2x)
I was a thief you said I stole your heart (2x)
