It’s Poetry Friday!

 

Here’s a beautiful song penned by Sandi Patty, which I hope will bless your heart and give you renewed hope in this world of stress, failures, uncertainty, disappointments and blinding fear.

 

In Heaven’s Eyes

A fervent prayer rose up to Heaven,

A fragile soul was losing ground.

Sorting through the earthly babel,

Heaven heard the sound.

This was a life of no distinction,

No successes, only tries,

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 orphaned 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.

In Heaven’s eyes, there are no losers,

In Heaven’s eyes, no hopeless cause.

There’s only people like you, with feelings like me,

Amazed by the grace we can find

In Heaven’s eyes.
