A Diamond in Your Eyes

I am a diamond in your eyes,
My sweet impressionable child.
I must keep my purity and strength
That you be not defiled.

I watch my ways, I watch my words.
I do not spare the praise
When you have listened to my words
And have followed in my ways.

My God has put you in my care
And trusted I'd be wise
And worthy of the honor as
A diamond in your eyes.
