Through My Eyes
Two world wars have ended, our nation
recoups - From depression, we've all felt the sting /Still, poor huddled masses
in boats are en route - when they reach Ellis Island they sing:
Chorus: Through my eyes, through my eyes, I see a chance to breath free / Through
my eyes, I can see, a home for my children to be.
long suffering people fight prejudice and fear - Their young pastor hears freedom
ring / He remembers the past, still he dreams "free at last" - While alone in
his jail cell he sings:
Through my eyes, through my eyes, I see white men and black men agree / Through
my eyes, I can see, the great nation these people could be.
a land far away, a war rages today - A young girl feels the pain that it brings
/ While the death-mongers drool, she still walks to school - Every day on her
way home she sings:
my eyes, through my eyes, I se my people live free / Through my eyes, I can see,
the great country my homeland should be.
One night, Jesus prayed to His Father in fear, asked God, "Let this cup pass from
me"/His Father said, "Son, it's only begun. But soon you will see what I see."
Chorus 2: Through My eyes, through My eyes, I see the hope You will bring / Through
My eyes, I can see, the grateful forgiven take wing / And We'll hear the songs
that they sing.
