Prince of Egypt soundtrack – Through Heaven's Eyes (Motion-Picture Version) lyrics

Album: Prince of Egypt soundtrack

A single thread in a tapestry,
Though it's color brightly shines,
Can never see it's purpose,
In the pattern of the grand design.

And the stone that sits on the very top,
Of the mountain's mighty face,
Doesn't think it's more important,
Than the stones that form the base!

So how can you see what your life is worth
Or what your value lies?
You will never see through the eyes of man,
You must look at your life,
look at your life through heaven's eyes!


A lake of gold in the desert sand,
Is less than a cool fresh spring.
And to one lost sheep a shepherd boy,
Is greater than the richest king.

Should a man lose everything he owns,
has he truly lost his worth?
Or is it the beginning,
Of a new and brighter birth?

So how do you measure the worth a man?
In wealth or strength or size?
In how much he gained or how much he gave,
The answer will come, the answer will come to him who tries
to look at his life through heaven's eyes!

And that's why we share all we have with you,
though there's little to be found.
When all you've got is nothing,
there's enough to go around!

No life can escape being blown about,
by the winds of change and chance,
and though you never know all the steps,
you must learn to join the dance,
you must learn to join the dance,

So how do you judge what a man is worth?
By what he builds or buys
You can never see through your eyes on earth,
look through heaven's eyes, look at your life,
Look at your life
Look at your life through heaven's eyes!
