A Hope Through Heaven’s Eyes

The song “Through Heaven’s Eyes” gives hope to anyone who might doubt the worth of his/her life.

“A single thread in a tapestry through its color brightly shines

Can never see its purpose in the pattern of the grand design…

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…

If a man 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 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…

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.”

Excerpt of partial lyrics of “Through Heaven’s Eyes” written by Stephen Schwartz (1998).  Entire song in YouTube Video below from the movie The Prince of Egypt.

    What a wonderful reminder. I do love the song and the phrase “look at your life through heaven’s eyes”. When we all learn to look at our own lives through heaven’s eyes and adjust accordingly, we will have an even more wonderful world.
