Words and Music by Glen Davis
Blue Jewel, floating out in space,
Who painted the beauty of your lovely face?
Blue jewel, you make me think of grace.
You make me want to fall to my knees,
You make me want to cry holy, holy, holy,
You make me want to sing, you make me want to sing.
Blue jewel, I see the prints of Feet,
That once walked upon your lanes and streets.
Blue Jewel, it was the Prince of peace,
The Maker of your loveliness,
The Savior of your citizens,
It makes me want to sing, it makes me want to sing.
For as lovely as you are, how much more must your Maker be?
And as brightly as you shine,
Oh how I wonder of His glory.
Blue Jewel, as lovely as you are.
One day, you’ll be purified by fire.
And your beauty will be greater, greater far
(We will walk your streets of holiness,
Your every way will be filled with righteousness,
And we will forever sing,
of your wondrous King.
Blue Jewel, Blue Jewel, Blue Jewel.
