Through the Eyes of Love

Through the Eyes of Love
Music and Lyrics by Rebecca Minor

A man ventures into town, but he’s robbed and he’s beaten down.
More than one person passes him by without offering to lend a hand.
‘Till a man with a foreign face takes notice and slows his pace.
He casts aside social barriers, and he takes the stranger under his care.

And the grateful man, he asks “Why did you save me?”
And he answers,
“In this world we all share one Father one Mother; each heart like the other.
Look through the eyes of Love and you’ll only see your brother there.
There’s power in forgiveness. I believe we can live this.
Look through the eyes of Love and you’ll see you’re not that different from
me.”

Now you say that you’re God’s not mine, and that’s why you draw this line.
There are too many differences, and it’s best we remain status quo.
But we travel from shore to shore, so our worlds collide all the more.
We’re given chances to reach out like that kind stranger long ago.

And if we could only try to hear each other
we would learn that
“In this world we all share one Father one Mother; each heart like the other.
Look through the eyes of Love and you’ll only see your brother there.
There’s power in forgiveness. I believe we can live this.
Look through the eyes of Love and you’ll see you’re not that different from
me.”

One Father one Mother; each heart like the other.
Look through the eyes of Love and you’ll only see your brother there.
There’s power in forgiveness. I believe we can live this.
Look through the eyes of Love and you’ll see you’re not that different from
me.

Just believe you can see through the eyes of Love,
Through the eyes of Love.
Look through the eyes of Love and you’ll see you’re not that different from
me.
