Verse 1:
Can you spare some change is what I heard him say
At the light, so I dug through my ashtray
My good deed today, changed my life
I thought I knew it all, quick to right him off
Looked like he was lost, until I heard him speak
Now I’ve heard that voice before knew that it was yours
He said you loved me more than I even believed

Pre-chorus:
People judge from what they see
But Lord you see the whole world

Chorus:
If we had Your eyes
We’d see things right
If we could just see from Your point view
The most things won’t be as they seem
If we had Your eyes
If we had Your eyes

Verse 2:
‘I had the perfect day’ is what she says to me all the time
She’s so beautiful, nothing’s ever wrong in her life
Yeah that’s what I thought, until I saw the scars she cut in her eyes
She was hiding from me
She never said a word, and all I said to her is that
… that you could ever believe

Pre-chorus:
People judge from what they see
But Lord you see the whole world

Chorus:
If we had Your eyes
We’d see things right
If we could just see from Your point view
The most things won’t be as they seem
If we had Your eyes
If we had Your eyes

Verse 3:
Show me, teach me, I don’t see clearly
Living the spirit ain’t cool
We be able to show love, the way that You love us
If we could see like You
If we had Your eyes
If we had Your eyes

Chorus:
If we had Your eyes
We’d see things right
We’d see things right
If we could just see from Your point view
The most things won’t be as they seem
If we had Your eyes
If we had Your eyes

God if I had Your eyes
I could love better, have more compassion
And I would understand what I’m going through, while I’m going through
I’d be more patient
God help me to see things the way you see things
Did I already say help me to be patient,
I’ll say that again, wow
Give us your eyes God
