Magic mirror don't let me walk away without seeing who I am
Magic mirror don't let me see who I am and only walk away

I must have walked by you a thousand times before
I never noticed you were hanging on my door
But then you caught my eye and let me see myself
My legs were running with my shoes nailed to the shelf

When I saw you hanging there I had to stop and stare
'Cause every time I see a little more of me

Sometimes I don't know who's been looking back at me
If I'd look closer I know I would always see
Won't you reflect your light on me and I'll reflect on you
Let me really see just how I look to you

When I act too tall, you bring me down to size
And when I feel too small you show me all the lies I try to tell myself
How can I thank you for all you've done for me?

And now I'm watching and I see me grow in you
I know that I've got so much growing left to do
Please keep me in your light from morning until night
Until I finally come into the image of the Son

    General CommentThe meaning of this song comes from the Bible, specifically James 1:22-25,

    "22Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror 24and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does."

    Its a song rejoicing that the Law of the Lord (The 10 Commandments) show us our sin and by turning from those sins we see, we get the truest freedom that James writes about.

    God did not give us the 10 Commandments just to have laws and rules, but that by following those rules that we may have life. Think about it, after the sin of the Terrorists on September 11th all of the freedom we lost in the US (think airports). It goes the other way too.

    Since we have all broken the 10 Commandments, we are guilty before God on judgment day. But God sent Jesus to save us and redeem us through his sacrificial death on the cross--and by having faith in Jesus and repenting (turning from) our sins, we can have everlasting life in Him. How Awesome!
