Crags and Clay finishes with the words “Fearfully and wonderfully and beautifully made”.

The Psalmist writes: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:14) You can read the whole of Psalm 139 here.

Before we look at The Fall, and to keep us from despairing when we come to it, I’d thought I’d write another post on Crags and Clay, dedicated to the concluding words of the song.

Gungor’s Beautiful Things, the title track of their albums, picks up from where we left off in the previous post on Crags and Clay – “All this pain […] All this earth/ Could all that is lost ever be found?” And then goes on to talk about renewal and restoration. The band Needtobreathe speaks of the yearning for “something beautiful” in their song by the same name. You can watch an exclusive performance of their song here.

And here’s Gungor performing Beautiful Things:

“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” (2 Corinthians 5:14-17)
