Hi all,

I wanted to share this song with you.   Its one that's really personal to me - I was going through a tough time with some issues several years ago, and I felt like God spoke this song directly to me.

In My Eyes (Ryan Sheeler, 2008)

VERSE 1
I’ve watched you grow, my child
Through all the years of joy
I was right there with you
When it was all so wonderful and new

Those first steps you’d take
And soon you’d have to fall
I was there to help you stand
It was me who held your hand

VERSE 2
I know about your sorrow
and shared the pain you kept
hidden all these years
inside of your unspoken tears

I have waited here
I’ve wanted you to know
By my hand the earth was made
So my child, don’t be afraid

CHORUS
In my eyes, you were always loved
I’d leave my flock just to run to you
Lay my word inside your heart
then you’ll know it’s true
That in the end, I am waiting here for you

VERSE 3
I long to be close to you
In the quiet place
Where you wouldn’t tell me
How badly your heart wanted to be free

I gave a choice to you
Before you were even born
To show my fullest love
I sent this sign from up above

BRIDGE - INSTRUMENTAL

VERSE 4
I know how far you’ve strayed
There is still a way back home
This is my only Son
My Word, My Love, the Chosen One


When you see the farthest star
And look deep inside your heart
I am and will always be
I know some day you’ll see
(that…)

CHORUS - END

 Hey Ryan, thank you for sharing it, I have to say that I believe God did speak it to you, and you did with it what he wanted... for you to share it.  I enjoyed listening... you did a beautiful production on it.

Dennis,

Thank you, man.  I appreciate that very much.   Its a very special song to me.  Production wise I didn't wanna overdo, but the female vocals (very subtle) and sax solo seemed to make a really nice touch.

Thanks again. 

-Ryan
