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

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

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

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

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

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
And only walk away
