Through Heaven’s Eyes | The Prince of Egypt Soundtrack
A single thread in a tapestry
though its color brightly shine
can never see its purpose
in the pattern of the grand design
And the stone that sits on the very top
of the mountain’s mighty face
doesn’t think it’s more important
than the stones that forms 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!
A lake of gold in the desert sand
is less than a cool fresh spring
To one lost sheep, a shepherd boy
Is greater than the richest king
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,
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 our eyes on earth
Look through heaven’s eyes, look at your life
Look at your life
Look at your life through heaven’s eyes!
