Precious in the Eyes
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne

1.
She’s on the street again.
Will she never see the end?
Another night alone with someone new.
And she can play the part
To hide a broken heart.
You hurry past so she won’t call on you. But she's...

Chorus:
...Precious in the eyes of Jesus.
Precious in the eyes of a king.
When will you realize,
The one you criticize
Is precious in the eyes of Jesus?

2.
Old beyond his years,
He’s learned to hide the tears.
At 12, he’s tough enough to fool his friends.
They know him downtown well,
And he’s put his dad through hell.
There’s nothin’ good that you can see in him. But he’s (Chorus)

3.
Trapped within a shell.
Someone you don’t know well;
A person you would rather just ignore.
Someone who always falls,
And you have no love at all.
So you just keep him locked behind a door, but you're (Chorus)

Final Chorus:
We’re precious in the eyes of Jesus.
Precious in the eyes of a king.
When will we realize,
The ones we criticize
Are precious in the eyes of Jesus?
