See the Teacher sitting on a mountain
See Him walking along the shore
Friends and disciples gathering around Him
Say never spake a man like this before

But why's a man as wise as He
Weeping alone in Gethsemane
Did He know some would never see
The heaven in His eyes

See the Master walking on the water
Hear Him speak and calm an angry wave
Look at Him raising up Jairus's daughter
And with a word Lazarus comes forth from the grave

But why is a man as strong as this
Being betrayed by a good friend's kiss
Could it be that maybe this man missed
The heaven in His eyes

I'm not talking about the pie in the sky
That you good boys and girls get in the by and by
But rather the strength, the strength that we can find
If we've got the guts to try

See the Teacher playing with the children
Hear Him baffle doctors of the law
Look at the people gathering to go with Him
Those who see the vision that He saw

This is why a man as holy as He
Had to die alone on Calvary
It was the only way that we could ever see
The heaven in His eyes

The heaven in His eyes
The heaven in His eyes
Yeah, the heaven in His eyes
The heaven in His eyes

    General CommentThis song raises the issue many struggled with in new testament times and even today... that fact of the divinity of Jesus. With all that He taught and did, people still did not "see" the heaven in Him, that He is God in the flesh. It is interesting to note, however, how the song lyrics change at the end, from people missing the signs and wonders to the deed at Calvary becomeing what we needed to finally open our eyes and see Jesus as what He really is, the Savior of the world. Although this song appears on Mulins' posthumous album "The Jesus Record," he actually wrote it around 20 years earlier. The song was originally recorded on his first (independent) album "Behold the Man," recorded in 1982 with his college band Zion. Interestingly, on the "demo" disc for "The Jesus Record," Mulllins performs the song almost exactly the same way he did on that first recording.
