Lyrics
In a field of yellow flowers
underneath the sun
bluest eyes that spark with lightning
boy with shoes undone.
He is young
so full of hope
reveling in tiny dreams
filling up his arms with flowers
right for giving any queen.
Running to her beaming bright
while cradling his prize.
A flickering of yellow light
within his mother's eyes.
She holds them to her heart
keeping them where they'll be safe
clasped within her very marrow
dandelions in a vase.


{chorus 1}:

She sees love where
anyone else would see weeds.
all hope is found.
Here is everything he needs.
Fathomless your endless mercy
weight I could not lift.
Where do I fit in this puzzle
what good are these gifts?
Not a martyr, or a saint
scarcely can I struggle through.
All that I have ever wanted
was to give my best to you.


{chorus 2}:

Lord, search my heart
create in me something clean.
Dandelions
you see flowers in these weeds.
Gently lifting hands to heaven
softened by the sweetest hush
a Father sings over His children
loving them so very much.
More than words could warrant
deeper than the darkest blue
more than sacrifice could merit Lord, I give my heart to You.
M.U.
