Ty Herndon – Tears In God's Eyes lyrics

One man can't sleep in his penthouse bed

Wall Street worries fill his head

While another man dreams

In his cardboard she'd on Broadway

Early morning traffic jam

Wake up call for both of them

Will work to eat asks easy street for small change

And which one needs it more

The rich man or the poor

A change of heart and attitude

Unselfishness meets gratitude


It's enough to put tears in God's eyes

Enough to make the angels cry

When the power of love lifts someone above

The emptiness of their unbearable life

It's enough to put tears in God's eyes

Late at night a baby cries

His mother gives him life then dies

With no one even by them to be sad

But another woman fills the need

It's her heart and his mouth she'll feed

When she gives her love to the child she never had

Oh which one needs it more

It's hard to say for sure

When something grows where nothing was

As strong as any bond of blood

Repeat Chorus


Every minute every day a little miracles done

Someone opens up their heart and lets it shine like the sun

And just the light of that one

Repeat Chorus
