Video: Through Your Eyes

This is my most recent song this year. It captures honest feelings of how, in the past, I have perceived poverty in our city.  I still struggle with these suspicions and keeping my guard up.  I still rely on God to show me how I should and must react.

I read the sign that you’re holding
I’ve got a feeling its not the truth
My money stays in my pocket
I’m going to need to see some proof

I see you lying in the street corner
Are you pretending to be asleep?
Or maybe you just drank yourself silly
With the money you should have used to eat

Why am I at times so guarded?
Why am I afraid of being deceived?
What would love do in this situation Lord?
Its through Your eyes I need to see!

I feel the guilt and roll down my window
You cross some lanes to collect my change
You smile at me and say God bless you
I drive and contemplate the irony.

How can I be so cold hearted?
Not to hurt for those who are in need?
What would love do in this situation Lord?
It’s through Your eyes I need to see!

For God so loved the world
He sent his only son
For each and everyone
For each and everyone

  1. Wow man! Great song. I think you pretty much captured all the thoughts I had during a recent visit to the inner city. Great songwriting. Can’t believe how you captured that whole struggle.
