can never see its purpose in the pattern of the grand design
and the stone that sits on the very top of the mountain's mighty face
does it think it's more important than the stones that form the base?
so how can you see what your life is worth or where your value lies?
you can never see through the eyes of man
you must 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
if 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 of a man; in wealth or strength or size?
in how much he gained or how much he gave?
the answer will come to him who tries to look at his life through heaven's eyes
*from the prince of egypt soundtrack*
try as we may, we still can't run from the people's opinions on us. what they think about us does matter but its dismal when compared to what Allah think of us. all that matters to me now is Allah. nothing else comes close in trying to make Him pleased with me.
