Steven Curtis Chapman – His Eyes lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sometimes His eyes were gentle
And filled with laughter
And sometimes they cried
Sometimes there was a fire
Of holy anger
In Jesus' eyes
But the eyes that saw hope in the hopeless
That saw through the fault to the need
Are the same eyes that look down from heaven
Into the deepest part of you and me

His eyes are always upon us
His eyes never close in sleep
And no matter where you go
You will always be in His eyes
In His eyes

[Verse 2]
Sometimes His voice comes calling
Like rolling thunder
Or like driving rain
And sometimes His voice is quiet
And we start to wonder
If He knows our pain
But He who spoke peace to the water
Cares more for our hearts than the waves
And the voice that once said "You're forgiven"
Still says "You're forgiven" today


[Verse 3]
Sometimes I look above me
When stars are shining
And I feel so small
How could the God of heaven
And all creation
Know I'm here at all
But then in silence He whispers
"My child, I created you too
And you're my most precious creation
I even gave my Son for you"


Sometimes His eyes were gentle
And filled with laughter

    This song looks into the reality that, though God's eyes have beheld things that humans will never be able to comprehend, He still looks out for every one of us. Even our sin, which goes against every aspect of His holiness, has not caused Him to stop caring for us. And better than that, He not only has always cared about us in the past, but He has promised to continue to do so into the future.
