"FATHER'S EYES" sung to the tune of "Father's Eyes" as sung by Amy Grant
Words recently revised by Ruth Anne Brott.



I MAY NOT BE EVERY FATHER'S DREAM FOR HIS 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 WANT TO HEAR THEM SAY:
SHE'S GOT HER FATHER'S EYES, HER FATHER'S EYES.
EYES THAT ARE GOOD WITH NUMBERS, THAT MUCH IS TRUE,
BUT ASK HIM TO SPELL OUT A WORD, AND HE WON'T HAVE A CLUE.
EYES FULL OF COMPASSION, SEEING WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE,
EYES THAT FIND THE RIGHT TOOL FOR THE JOB,
AND DOING THEM, EVERYONE.
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 THINGS WE HAVE BOUGHT,
HIGH OR LOW THEY'LL ALL BE SHOWN TO SEE HOW MUCH WE GOT OFF,
AND WHEN I SAW THIS SHIRT THAT HAD BEEN PRICED AT $34,
I KNEW I HAD TO BUY IT FOR YOU FOR A $1.99.
I'VE GOT MY FATHER'S EYES, MY FATHER'S EYES.
EYES THAT FIND A BARGAIN, WHEN BARGAINS CAN'T BE FOUND,
EYES THAT FIND 80% OFF WHEN 20'S ALL THAT'S AROUND.
EYES FULL OF WISDOM, KNOWING JUST WHAT TO DO,
EYES THAT READ GOD'S WORD IN LOVE AND SHOW THAT LOVE TO US TOO.
JUST LIKE MY FATHER'S EYES, MY FATHER'S EYES, MY FATHER'S EYES,
JUST LIKE MY FATHER'S EYES.
