When I Look in Your Eyes


The blessings of life are upon us, 
Surrounding us every day. 
The potential of every moment 
Guides us in every way. 

When I look at the sky, I see rainbows. 
When I look in your eyes, I see stars. 
When I look at the world, I see beauty. 
But when I look in your heart, I see God. 

Before us, the wonders of nature— 
The oceans, the mountains, the trees, 
The gentle caress of the morning, 
The sweet song that sings in the breeze. 

When I look at the sky, I see rainbows. 
When I look in your eyes, I see stars. 
When I look at the world, I see beauty. 
But when I look in your heart, I see God.

The bright light of love that surrounds us 
Brings healing and joy to the dance. 
As heaven and earth join together, 
We embrace the sacred romance. 

When I look at the sky, I see rainbows. 
When I look in your eyes, I see stars. 
When I look at the world, I see beauty. 
But when I look in your heart, I see God. 

I see God. I see God.
