Shepherd's Point Of View
by The McKameys



Verse 1
You are standing on the mountain, holding to the shepherds hand
The valley you just came through, was hard to understand
And the shepherd draws you closer, there's something He wants you to see
And He points back to the valley, and unfolds it's mystery.

Verse 2
As the eagles soar around you, and you look back on where you've been
One by one He answers questions that He did not answer then
He now shows you the danger of going your own way
All those roads you thought were better, would have led your soul astray.

Verse 3
He reminds you of that moment when you could not make it through
Now you see one set of footprints where He reached down and carried you
As your tears fall on His shoulder, you hank Him for His love
He says, Child I knew that one day, you'd see this valley from above.

Chorus
Things look different on the mountain from the shepherds point of view
Standing high above the trial, that He brought you safely through
All the valleys disappointments will never look the same to you
For things look different on the mountain from the shepherds point of view.

All the valleys disappointments will never look the same to you
For things look different on the mountain from the shepherds point of view
