Through Heaven’s Eyes


(skip to 0.38 for beginning of song)

A single thread in a tapestry
though its color brightly shines
can never see its purpose
in the pattern of the grand design
And the stone that sits up on the very top
of the mountain’s mighty face
doesn’t think it’s more important
than the stones that form the base
So how can you see what your life is worth
or where your value lies
you can never see through the eyes of man
you must look at your life
look at your life through heaven’s eyes
lai-la-lai…

A lake of gold in the desert sand
is less than a cool fresh spring
And to one lost sheep, a sheperd boy
is greater than the richest king
If a man were to lose everything he owns
has he truly lost his worth
or is it the beginning
of a new and brighter birth
So how do you measure the worth of a man
in wealth or strength or size
In how much he gained or how much he gave
The answer will come, the answer will come to him who tries
to look at his life through heaven’s eyes

And that’s why we share all we have with you
though there’s little to be found
When all you’ve got is nothing
there’s a lot to go around
No life can escape being blown about
by the winds of change and chance
and though you never know all the steps
you must learn to join the dance
you must learn to join the dance
lai-la-lai…
So how do you judge what a man is worth
by what he builds or buys
You can never see with your eyes on earth
Look through Heaven’s eyes, look at your life
Look at your life
Look at your life through Heaven’s eyes

This song has been important to me over the years. And I haven’t shared it before simply because I had forgotten how much it meant. Such poetry in the lyrics and such happiness in the singing of the lai-la-lai’s. Everything and everyone is important. Everyone is loved by God and held by God, no matter where they might appear in a man-made ‘hierarchy’. When we live with God we live with goodness, love, peace and strength in our hearts, that enables us to look at our lives and say thankyou. I love living. I’m happy
