"PORTRAIT"

Verse 1
If I could paint a portrait -of Your face
To show the world how beautyful You are,
I'd draw the gentlest eyes I've ever seen,
That shine more deeply than the brightest star,
Those eyes that looked into my very soul,
Saw every secret longing hidden there,
If I could paint a portrait,
Paint a portrait of You.

Verse 2
I'd draw the sweetest lips I've -ever known,
That spoke the words which healed my broken heart.
I'd use the purest colors I could find,
Use every ounce of strength and skill and art.
I'd fill in every detail of the smile
That warms my being and fills my every thought,
If I could paint a -portrait,
Paint a portrait of You.

Bridge
This then shall be my quest,
My all embracing theme:
How to describe the love
That lights my every dream.

Verse 3
Yet I have but a single life to use,
Such poor and humble gifts as I possess,
Few swift and passing days upon this Earth
To say what human speech can scarce express.
I pray my every thought and word and deed
May somehow portray your loveliness,
If I could paint a portrait,
Of Your face, Lord.
Let me paint a portrait,
Paint a portrait of You.
