IN MY FATHER'S EYES

Gary Duty

From a distance, He'd be watching me,
And I guess somehow He knew,
That in my heart I longed to be like Him.
In time the closer we became,
The more it seemed I grew:
I'd fall, He'd pick me up, and I'd try again.

He loves me even when I do
The things I shouldn't do,
And when I fail to do the things I should.
I've heard it said that love is blind,
And I've come to know it's true;
He forgets the bad and remembers all the good.

In my Father's eyes, there's no wrong I've done.
In my Father's eyes, I am the perfect son.
There must be someone I can't see,
And it makes me want to try
To be like the Son that's in my Father's eyes.

And when this life is over,
My last trial I've gone through,
'Twill be worth it all to hear Him say "Well done."
And maybe then I'll understand
Just what He saw in me,
Though I'm sure I'll find that He was blinded by the Son.

In my Father's eyes, there's no wrong I've done.
In my Father's eyes, I am the perfect son.
There must be someone I can't see,
And it makes me want to try
To be like the Son that's in my Father's eyes.
