In Heavens Eyes


A fervent prayer rose up to heaven,
A fragile soul was losing ground,
Sorting through the earthly babble,
Heaven heard the sound.
This was a life of no distinction
No successes only trials.
Yet gazing down on this unlovely one,
There was love in heaven’s eyes.
 
In heaven’s eyes there are no losers,
In heaven’s eyes no hopeless cause.
Only people like you
With feelings like me,
Amazed by the grace
We can find in heaven’s eyes.

The orphan child, the wayward father,
The homeless traveler in the rain.
When life goes by and no one bothers,
Heaven feels the pain.
Looking down God sees each heartache,
Knows each sorrow, hears each cry.
And looking up we’ll see compassion’s fire,
Ablaze in heaven’s eyes.
