When Her Eyes Are On The Child
Words by Ray Boltz, Music by Steve Millikan and Ray Boltz
Theres a mother whose name is Mary
And shes traveled very far
But shes not thinking
About her journey now
Theres a baby in her arms
And when her eyes are on the child
She finds all the strength she needs
All the struggles and the trials
Just turn into perfect peace
She can even stop and smile
When her eyes are on the child
Theres a soldier whose name is Terry
And hes serving far from home
Its the first time
That hes spent Christmas
Far away and all alone
And when his eyes are on the child
He finds all the strength he needs
All the struggles and the trials
Just turn into perfect peace
He can even stop and smile
When his eyes are on the child
Theres a world of lonely people
Chasing love and chasing styles
Oh but how different their lives could be
With their eyes upon the child
And when our eyes are on the child
We find all the strength we need
All the struggles and the trails
Just turn into perfect peace
We can even stop and smile
When our eyes are on the child
We can even stop and smile
When our eyes are on the child
