1 ‘Twas a gift so divine from the Father above,
This beautiful, beautiful life,
And I know that He means I shall fill it with love,
This beautiful, beautiful life.

Chorus:
O, the treasure how rare!
How precious and fair
This beautiful life is to me;
Like a gem from the mine,
It shall shine, it shall shine,
This beautiful, beautiful life.

2 There are troubles, and trials, and sins to ensnare,
This beautiful, beautiful life,
And the Father expects me to guard it with care,
This beautiful, beautiful life. [Chorus]

3 There’s a heaven to win worth a life to employ,
This beautiful, beautiful life,
And a mansion above where my soul shall enjoy,
That other more beautiful life. [Chorus]
