IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD - AND OF GOD!

In the eyes of the world, I am nothing...
I haven't got a job!
No place to lay my weary head...
No home... no roots... I must be a lazy slob!
BUT,in The Eyes of God,I AM SOMEONE, someone special am I!!!

In the eyes of the world, I am nothing...
My job is that of a loser - no credit card have I!
I was poorly educated, not eloquent it's true.
I haven't got a Filofax... I'm not 'on-line'... can't even have a bank account -
BUT, in The Eyes of God, I AM SOMEONE, someone special am I!!!

In the eyes of the world, I am nothing...
My face, or figure, doesn't fit in!
I can't afford plastic surgery, or even to go to a gym.
Even if I could, it wouldn't change much - it's ME that wouldn't fit in!
BUT, in The Eyes of God, I AM SOMEONE, someone special am I!!!

In the eyes of the world, I am nothing...
A nuisance, a drain upon society,
I am old... or infirm... or handicapped in some way...
They pretend not to see... but often look at me piously - or look away!
BUT, in The Eyes of God, I AM SOMEONE, someone special am I!!!

In the eyes of the world, I am nothing...
Because of bigotry and hatred, I never will fit in.
Whether through race... or beliefs... or my sickness...
Or poverty... or lack of fashion... or even... the colour of my skin...
BUT, in The Eyes of God, I AM SOMEONE, someone special am I!!!

In the eyes of the world, I am nothing...
A housewife/househusband... a mother/father... a 'carer' is all!
Underpaid - if at all...
Overworked, - twenty-four hour.seven day weeks at someone's beck and call!
BUT, in The Eyes of God, I AM SOMEONE, someone special am I!!!

In the eyes of the world I am nothing...
A criminal am I.
Doing time, paying for my crime,
I try to 'go straight', but it's all 'pie in the sky'!
BUT, in The Eyes of God, I AM SOMEONE, someone special am I!!!

In the eyes of the world, I am nothing...
In drink, drugs, or other 'excesses', I try to dull my pain.
People hurry by, pretending not to see.
Maybe, one day... someone will care... but I SEEM to hope in vain!
But, in The Eyes of God, I AM SOMEONE, someone special am I!!!

In the eyes of the world, I am nothing...
A prostitute am I.
I seperate my lives somehow,
To pay the bills I take risks each day!
BUT, in The Eyes of God, I AM SOMEONE, someone special am I!!!

In the eyes of the world, I am nothing...
A waste of space am I!
BUT, in The Eyes of God, I AM SOMEONE, someone special am I!
HE LOVINGLY CREATED ME, TO BE JUST WHO I AM.
NOT WHAT THE WORLD HAS TRIED TO MOULD ME TO BE,
I'M WHO GOD MADE ME TO BE, HIS PRECIOUS CHILD AM I!!!
