Beautiful Feet

by Kevin Stoda

I encourage readers to think of metaphors and images. Put them together and clash them. Feet come up in the Bible. There are running feet, washing of feet, and feet to be ready for battle. There are other cultural and social issues related to feet–some countries emphasizing feet more than others.

Two songs entitled BEAUTIFUL FEET are beautiful to listen to and I want to share.

NIBS VAN DER SPUY’s  BEAUTIFUL FEET  lyrics are as follows

There’s beauty in the feet of the wise man
bringing hope to the hungry soul
I didn’t know That you were dreaming
There’s beauty in the heart of a woman
open arms to the lost and the poor
A homeless child sat there weeping

Shine your lights on a thousand thirsty nations
they cryin’ out for something to believe in
Trying to work their way to find salvation
and the sounds of the beautiful feet

There was a man of water
and he spoke of the —–
With fellow world
With hope and glory
So we’ll write it on the hearts of children
and the hearts of the broken one
Say a prayer for the blind man walking
To show the faith to walk into their nation
To hold the sword of word that never leave you
The bount of truth to lead them to salvation
Shows the peace of their beautiful feet

We gonna write it on their hearts
We gonna write it on their hearts
Forever..we will follow you

Shine their lights on a thousand thirsty nations
They’re crying out for something to believe in
Trying to work their way to find salvation
and the sounds of their beautiful feet

A great performance of NIBS VAN DER SPUY’s  BEAUTIFUL FEET is here:    please listen!


LECRAE’s  LYRICS for BEAUTIFUL FEET   are as follows:

“Beautiful Feet”

Carlos was born in killa cali
Was walking down an alley and caught a bullet in his head that left him bleeding badly. He lost everything at that moment except his life
He lost his hearing lost his movement and he lost his sight
He laid there in a coma
But man nobody cared
The Gospel preached in his neighborhood? Nobody dared
But los got up out the coma got and was able to hear
A missionary shared the gospel to his open ears
He got saved got trained got discipled
Back to hood
You could find em preaching the bible
He led a homie to Christ from his same hood
Part of Church plant
Come on now ain’t his name good
This is blessing but I’m stressing that this is not the norm
We need leaders and belivers to help carry it on
But who would minister in a sinister part of town
I pray if Jesus is calling you that you would be found

Eric used to go to bible study as a kid
He got older and started doing what the hood did
A rival gang caught him slippin tried to take his life
But the jammed up so them beat him nice
He woke up in the hospital singing bible songs
Praise God he had a place to learn the bible from
But then he gets saved and wanna preach Christ they make him change his whole culture and way of life
He gotta get him a bachelors wear a suit and tie
Go to seminary
By then all of his boys will die
Jesus came to invade culture outta nazereth and used a couple fisherman who people saw as hazardous
The feet are beautiful if only they’d go
If ain’t nobody in hood preaching how will they know?
Eric is better used taught trues in his context
Somebody please plant a church in his projects.

In Luke 4 16 on down to 21 jesus says he’s messiah says hes the chosen one
But more than that he quotes Isaiah
That shows our savior targets oppressed captive blind and the broke I’m saying
Had a heart for the poor had a heart for the low
And 1st John 2:6 is way we should go
In Dueteronomy even tho they under the law
The tithes every third year the poor got em all
I ain’t sayin you wrong if you live in burbs
I’m sayin turn your attention to the hood cause we hurting
Man if you ain’t burdened please pick up your word an
Tho this world is going down while we here we can serve him
We bring this to the streets because we knew the streets
I pray that more would be burdend to have beautiful feet
You never knew the streets but truth is what you preach
I pray to God you’d be burdened for beautiful feet.
Go, go, go (run with those beautiful feet)
Go, go, go
You hold the truth that saves so run and shout it to the world
They can’t believe in something they ain’t never heard
Go, go, go and run with those beautiful feet
