"The Measure Of A Man" as written by Mark R. Harris, Donald A. Koch and Stephanie Rachel Lewis....
This world can analyze and size you up and throw you on the scales
They can I.Q. you and run you through
Their rigorous details
They can do their best to rate you

And they'll place you on the charts
And then back it up with scientific smarts
But there's more to what you're worth
Than their human eyes can see

Oh, I say the measure of a man
Is not how tall you stand
How wealthy or intelligent you are
'Cause I've found out the measure of a man

God knows and understands
For He looks inside to the bottom of your heart
And what's in the heart defines
The measure of a man

Well, you can doubt your worth
And search for who you are
And where you stand
But God made you in His image

When He formed you in His hands
And He looks at you with mercy
And He sees you through His love
You're His child and that will always be enough

For there's more to what you're worth
Than you could ever comprehend
Oh I say the measure of a man
Is not how tall you stand

How wealthy or intelligent you are
'Cause I've found out the measure of a man
God knows and understands
For He looks inside

To the bottom of your heart
And what's in the heart defines
The measure of a man
You can spend your life pursuing physical perfection

There is so much more
More than ever meets the eye
For God looks through the surface
And He defines your worth by what is on the inside

I say the measure of a man
Is not how tall you stand
How wealthy or intelligent you are
'Cause I've found out the measure of a man

God knows and understands
For He looks inside
To the bottom of your heart
And what's in the heart defines

Oh, I say the measure of
The measure of a man
Is not how tall you stand,
How wealthy or intelligent you are

Oh, I've found the measure of a man
God knows and understands it
For He looks to the bottom of your heart
And what's in the heart defines

Yeah, what's in the heart defines
Yeah, what's in the heart defines
The measure of a man
I know, I know

    General Commentthis is such a beautiful song! It means that while the world may measure you by outward and material things, God measures you by what's inside your heart.
