After the recent tragedies we've faced individually and collectively in Newton, Boston, West and now Moore, I find inspiration in a longtime favorite tune by Mindy Jostyn.
The lyrics remind us that no matter what has happened in our lives, we are loved, we are wanted and we matter. It speaks of the the fire that never goes out...like the love in the heart of this great nation, and the flame of all humanity around the globe.
May you find comfort, peace and love, and the courage to live from the heart, wherever you are.
Words by Mindy Jostyn & Jacob Brackman Music by Mindy Jostyn In His eyes, you're a fire that never goes out A light on the top of a hill In His eyes you're a poet, a painter, a prophet With a mission of love to fulfill Outside there's a world so enchantingly strange A maze of illusion and lies But there's never a story that ever could change The glory of you in His eyes In His eyes you're a radiant vision of beauty A gemstone cut one of a kind You're fine as a diamond, deep as a ruby Rare as a jade in His mind No need to believe all you may have been told No need to live in disguise You're brighter than silver, purer than gold A pearl beyond price in His eyes You're an innocent child in the sight of His face No cause for blame or fear or disgrace He sees only goodness, His vision is true And nothing can change the perfection of you in His eyes In His eyes, you're a fire that never goes out A light on the top of a hill You're a rose in the forest, a prelude from Bach A triumph of heavenly skill Outside there's a world that keeps breaking your heart And tearing your dreams down to size But guiding you homeward, piercing the dark Is the lovelight that shines in His eyes Now and forever, that light never dies You're dearly beloved in His eyes
