Inspirational Vocal Solo
As I was spending yet another sleepless night, thinking about how best to pray for a dear friend dealing with a severe challenge, I just couldn’t get my thoughts calm. So, I asked for something that “I could know for sure”. What came to me was this: “Why, she’s the apple of my eye! I just love her!” I remained in prayer for quite some time. Once I was at peace, this song came to me phrase by phrase, with the melody nicely married to it. My deepest wish is that this song will continue to comfort everyone that hears it.
Apple of My Eye
Music and Lyrics by: Deborah Ann Offenhauser
And God saw that His handiwork was good!
And the angels agreed!
And when God looked at the ones called Man,
He so loved them, He loved them!
And His love began to pour out in a song!
“You’re the one I’ve waited for, You’re the one I love.
You’re the one that I adore, I’ve sent you from above.
You’re the ‘apple of my eye’, You’re my heart’s desire.
You reflect the Love I am, that lifts you and inspires.
You are My child, My blessed one, so perfect in my sight.
I’ve given you the gift of Life, and that includes My might!
You are My child, My blessed one.
You cannot fail to please.
You have the freedom to be free from sin, sickness, disease!”
And Man was awed by what he heard and felt and saw that day.
He knew the welling up inside would express itself in praise!
“Oh father, praise Thy Name!
You are Life, Truth and Love, You are Mind, Soul, Principle,
The Spirit that’s above.
I am Yours and You are mine to worship and adore.
I am here to reflect You, to live and love and more!
I’m the apple of your eyes!”
You are Life all around. You are everything good that lives inside all
creatures found. I am Yours and You are mine to worship and adore. I am
here to reflect You, to live and love and more! I’m the apple of Your eye!”
