YouTube video:

When I see theworld through a child’s eyes,

I see mountainsand bluebirds and bright butterflies;

I feel sandthrough my toes when at the beach

And the apples onthe tree just out of reach.

When I see the worldthrough a child’s eyes,

It’s easy tobelieve in a Heavenly Father so wise,

That He createdthis earth and all its beauty untold;

I still hope to see it that way when I’m old.


When I see afamily through the eyes of a child,

I see a father whoprovides and a mother who smiles;

I have brothersand sisters who are kind to me

And we all playtogether in harmony.

When I see afamily through the eyes of a child,

I can believe inHeavenly Parents, loving and mild,

I can view eachperson as someone of worth

And accept them asGod’s family here on the earth.


When I see othersthrough the eyes of a child,

I can learncompassion, to speak without guile;

I can beteachable, forgiving, honest, and true,

When I see thekind things others may do.

It’s easy to believein a God who is just,

When I learn fromothers to show mercy and trust.

I can learnpatience while waiting a while,

For God’sblessings to come to an obedient child.


(Optional for theChristmas season)

When I seeChristmas through a child’s eyes,

I feel laughterand magic and wondrous surprise;

I love lights andmusic and cookies and songs,

I want to serveothers and never do wrong.

It’s easy tobelieve when Baby Jesus was born

Though ‘twas longago on that Christmas morn,

That Love had comedown to redeem and glorify,

When I see ourSavior through a child’s eyes.
