    Bart –
    I am sitting here with tears streaming down my face. Such an incredible message you spoke there. Beautiful. May your words and your songs continue to reach and bless people of all ages.
    Thank you for the sacrifices you make to bring the Word and the music to us all.
    God bless you.

    Thank you for this song. I am a 44 year old woman who has been discarded for someone who is much younger, someone I’ve been told is much smarter, and much more beautiful . . . I will hold tightly to God’s truth, that in his eyes I am beautiful, cherished . . . even loved! And that is what truly matters.

    You are so much more than a guy who writes lyrics & sings them with and for your friends! You have such conviction with every song you write. You are beautiful!! 🙂

    “Because of the Cross, we have a chance.” Truly, these are the greatest words we could ever have hope in. Thanks for sharing your heart.

    As i listened to this song, I realized how much i needed to hear the words. I think sometimes as we grow older we forget how beautiful we are. Lately, God seems to be reminding me first when my boy friend sang the song Beautiful by jim brickman, and then every day in how Anthony looks at me and treats me with respect, and now in this song. Anthony won us tickets to your concert in Hutchinson KS tomorrow night and I hope and pray that you sing this song, and wish that you would dedicate it to anthony to let him know just how wonderful of a man he is and how truly beautiful he has made me feel after years of dealing with losing my virginity to a gang rape, I finally for the first time feel as though I have that back, and can give that to just him. I love you Anthony, thanks for making me feel truly beautiful and loved again not only by my heavenly father but my you as well. Love has truly come back to me and I have God and you to thank for that. This song means the world to me Thanks Mercy me.

    You know, as a child growing up I never believed in religion. When my mom passed when I was 12, I hit an all time low. It was when I first heard your music that I found my faith. You guys are the reason I found hope. And for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    I have been taught by my family growing up that I am not worth anything. These past few days have been really bad for me, but I just heard this song on the radio, and it hit the right spot. Thank you.

    I saw you guys at Bellevue Baptist church in Memphis,Tn and when you sang this song, and out of all the thousands of people that were there. I felt so infused with happiness and I truly felt beautiful, and that one day I would be married and feel that love and respect I long for =) thank you for this song

    Had received a lot of criticism and rejection this month. Said a prayer asking God to remind me who I am, who he created me to be. That afternoon I heard this song for the first time. An amazing direct response to prayer. Amazing!

    MercyMe “I Can Only Imagine,” is definitely a mega hit .. I love this song! It is one of your best songs…

  • Kyle

    Thank you so much for this song!! It has truly help me through the toughest time in my life and when I get down and just don’t want to feel this pain I listen to your song. I had walked in on my fiance cheating on me and with out this msg and my friends I don’t know if I’d still be here.

    The song “Beautiful” means so much to me. I am a survivor of child sexual abuse, now at the age of 42, I still struggle everyday. To be reminded of how beautiful each one of us truly are through the creation of our amazing God is greatly needed. I have been a huge advocate for abused children my entire adult life and I truly believe every child needs to hear how beautiful they are. This is why I love this song so much! Thank you Mercy Me!
    In Christ’s Love; Belinda

    I can not tell you how much this song means to me. I am going through a VERY difficult time in my life due to my own sin i committed 7 years ago. Because of the sin i became a Christian but my husband and family barre the scares. It is hard for my husband to forgive me and words are the best source of release for him. I don’t blame him. But there are many weeks that go by that i feel very unloved or worthless. When i first heard this song…It took everything in me to not start crying in the car. I didn’t want to upset my children. I know God thinks i’m beautiful but it is hard to really believe under the circumstances. A lot of times i still see someone very ugly. Thank you for hearing God and writing these much needed words.

    Every time I listen to this song it reminds me of how Jesus sees me. You guys are trophies for Christ.

  • Angel Spellman

    I have to say that I attended a concert the first time I heard this song I fell in LOVE. This song is my inspiration to the day. I listen to it every day and I hear the words.

  • Renee LaPointe

    When I first heard this song, tears welled up inside me and spilled over.  I have such low self-esteem despite my faith and walk with Jesus.  It just seems that I cannot do anything right.  This song so touched my heart that it spoke right to me wounded spirit.  Thank you SO much.

    Bart thank you so much for writing the song Beautiful. I was not wanted,and used as a punching bag whenever my mom thought of my Dad by her,her second husband and siblings. I’m victim of childabuse,verbal,mental and sexual abuse. Im told that I’m ugly, worthless and shoulda died as a baby. I really believed it and was gonna set myself on fire w gasoline make myself uglier. Low self esteem being abused as a aft too. When I first heard it I cried now when I hear it I Will smile. I wished I heard this when I was a teenager and young adult. Now I listen to it when I’m feeling down or missing a special person in my life that doesn’t know how much that person means to me. He will never really know how much he is loved and admired by me. Thank you for writing this song. It means a lot to me and hope you sing it in Indiana. Sigh P.S. my Angel told me he wrote it for me. He has been with me since I fetus. Smile this song makes my day when I hear it. God Bless You Bart.
