Nothing in the Eyes of the World

David E. Blowers and Nick Cardilino

 

They were forced to leave their home

The decree came down from Rome

They were nothing in the eyes of the world

They made the trek to Bethlehem

Where they found no room at the inn

They were nothing in the eyes of the world

 

Angels sang of the incarnation

Godís most perfect revelation

Jesus, the Messiah, King of kings

Yet he was nothing,

Nothing in the eyes of the world

 

She wrapped him up in strips of cloth

And for a crib, she used a trough

They were nothing in the eyes of the world

The angelsí news had been revealed

To lowly shepherds in a field

Who were nothing in the eyes of the world

 

Chorus

 

When he grew up, he ate with sinners

And said the first shall be the last

Those in power tried to silence him

But the crowds grew wide and vast

He showed the healing love of God

To all the sick and the outcast

Who were nothing in the eyes of the world

 

His mother wept at his crucifixion

A brutal death fulfilled his mission

Born to die so we might be redeemed

Angels sang at his incarnation

Then sang again at our salvation

When he rose from the grave for you and me

Who are nothing,

Nothing in the eyes of the world

But who are everything,

Everything in the eyes of the Lord
