Lyrics

Little girl, six years old,
Trapped in tragic flames in a house full of smoke.
Little girl, head to toe
Blisters and pain, never the same again.

And she?s finding that people can be vicious and life is unfair
She?s ashamed of the scars that she wears.

Such beautiful scars,
Such wonderful evidence life has been spared
Such beautiful scars,
Such wonderful, beautiful signs that the healing has come,
Healing has come.

Little girl, grown up now,
still not deaf to the laughter or blind to the stares.
Little girl, wonders how
anyone could, anyone would love her?

Perfect man, thirty-three,
bruised and beaten, suffered her sin and her shame.
Perfect man, hands and feet,
nailed to a cross, paid the great cost for her

And she?s trying hard just to believe there is someone who cares.
She?s amazed at the scars that He wears.

Such beautiful scars,
Such wonderful evidence life has been spared
Such beautiful scars,
Such wonderful, beautiful signs that the healing has come,
Healing has come.

Every time she sees the scars, comes a tear to her eye.
Every time she sees the scars, comes a smile to her face, a smile to her face.

Such beautiful scars,
Such wonderful evidence life has been spared
Such beautiful scars,
Such wonderful, beautiful signs that the healing has come,
Healing has come.
