Iím blessed with the gift of beauty;
Not the kind the world has known.
Itís not about the way I walk
Or the features that I own.

Itís all about the way I see
Everything around me.
Itís a stream, a brook,
And the way I look
Through the eyes of the One who found me.

Iím blessed with the gift of vision;
Not the kind the world has seen.
Itís not about shapes or colors,
Big or small, or in between.

Itís all about the way I see
Everything around me.
Itís a stream, a brook,
And the way I look
Through the eyes of the One who found me.

I look at you with blessed eyes;
I see what money canít buy.
Love beyond measure in your soul --
The blessed free gift of Life.

Itís all about the way I see
Everything around me.
Itís a stream, a brook,
And the way I look
Through the eyes of the One who found me.

Iím blessed with the gift of riches --
Money canít buy me this much.
Iím blessed to see so much beauty
In all that the Masterís touched.

Itís all about the way I see
Everything around me.
Itís a stream, a brook,
And the way I look
Through the eyes of the One who found me.

(You are beautiful!)
