"Father's Eyes"

(by Amy Grant)

"I may not be every mother's dream for her little girl
And my face may not grace the mind of everyone in the world
But that's alright as long as I can have one wish, I pray
When people look inside my life, I wanna hear them say

She's got her father's eyes
Her father's eyes
Eyes that find the good in things
When good is not around
Eyes that find the source of help, when help just can't be found
Eyes full of compassion, seein' every pain
Knowin' what you're goin' through, and feelin' it the same

Just like my father's eyes
My father's eyes
My father's eyes
Just like my father's eyes

On that day when we will pay for all the deeds we've done
Good and bad, they'll all be had to see by everyone
And when you're called to stand and tell just what you saw in me
More than anything I know, I want your words to be

She had her father's eyes, her father's eyes
Eyes that found the good in things when good was not around
Eyes that found the source of help when help would not be found
Eyes full of compassion, seein' every pain
Knowin' what you're goin' through and feelin' it the same

Just like my father's eyes..."

This one's an oldie but a goodie. When I was a little girl, I used to sing this at church on Father's Day. I think there's a picture of me somewhere with an awful perm, long beautiful dress & big ol' tennis shoes! But, I'm sure I looked beautiful to my daddy! I love you, Dad! Happy Father's Day!
