If you could see what I see,
Then you would see true beauty.
Beauty comes from inside
It’s something you can’t hide
I’m not beautiful, you say
You don’t even like yourself today
I can see that you have been hurt
A lot of the time, you feel like dirt
You feel nobody cares for you and why should they?
I don’t know the things you have done along the way.
There’s a darkness that swirls around you
It’s so thick at times, you just can’t see.
The walls close in around you so tight,
Feeling alone, you search for the light
Bound by the fear and pain,
You are paralyzed by those chains
You can’t believe I am standing here
Because all of your life you have dreamed
That somehow love would find you
And now I’m telling you, you are a treasure
A precious gem without measure.
If you could see, then you’d understand,
Why I fall down to my knees and
Pray my love will be worthy of the one
Who gave the life and blood of his only son.
So that you could see what I see
If beauty is in the eye of the beholder,
Then, I am beholding true beauty!
