Through the eyes of Love — Rebecca Minor

A man ventures into town, but he's robbed and he's beaten down.
More than one person passes him by without offering to lend a hand.
'Till a man with a foreign face takes notice and slows his pace.
He casts aside social barriers, and he takes the stranger under his care.

And the grateful man, he asks "Why did you save me?"
And he answers,
"In this world we all share one Father one Mother; each heart like the other.
Look through the eyes of Love and you'll only see your brother there.
There's power in forgiveness. I believe we can live this.
Look through the eyes of Love and you'll see you're not that different from me."

Now you say that your God's not mine, and that's why you draw this line.
There are too many differences, and it's best we remain status quo.
But we travel from shore to shore, so our worlds collide all the more.
We're given chances to reach out like that kind stranger long ago.

And if we could only try to hear each other
we would learn that
"In this world we all share one Father one Mother; each heart like the other.
Look through the eyes of Love and you'll only see your brother there.
There's power in forgiveness. I believe we can live this.
Look through the eyes of Love and you'll see you're not that different from me."

One Father one Mother; each heart like the other.
Look through the eyes of Love and you'll only see your brother there.
There's power in forgiveness. I believe we can live this.
Look through the eyes of Love and you'll see you're not that different from me.

Just believe you can see through the eyes of Love,
Through the eyes of Love.
Look through the eyes of Love and you'll see you're not that different from me.

Listen to Rebecca share the inspiration behind Through the eyes of Love.

Rebecca earned a voice performance degree from Ithaca College, and has sung in operas, musicals and concerts, primarily in New York State. She has also sung as a soloist in various Christian Science branches for over 11 years. In recent years Rebecca discovered she had an affinity for writing music, and began to craft autobiographical songs about the ups and downs of urban life. This exploration, along with the years of exposure to sacred music led her naturally into composing inspirational music as well. She has since joined the inspirational music company, Watchfire Music, as a composer of sacred solos, and her sheet music and recordings of those solos can be found on www.watchfiremusic.com under the composers tab. Rebecca is thrilled that three of these pieces have been performed as solos by Julia Wade at The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston. Rebecca has performed her music in the Watchfire Music listening room concert series, in church-sponsored musical programs, and in musically interactive lectures alongside Maryl Walters and Ginny Luedeman. Rebecca is one of the two co-soloists at The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ Scientist, in Boston.
