“We wrote Umuhle because we were in awe of the beauty of the Lord. In our own personal experiences with Him and in scripture every single facet of His character is gloriously beautiful. His love, joy, humility, honesty, justice, dedication, wisdom, faithfulness, and many more other traits are what makes Him stunning. As mere humans, we can never be all these things as fully as we wish we could be, and no person in our lives could fulfil all these needs for us, but Jesus possesses all these characteristics to their fullest possible extreme, all at once! So, we say Umuhle (He is beautiful/good) because we honor Him” – Melisa
