My Father's Eyes is the second album by Christian singer-songwriter Amy Grant, released in 1979 on Myrrh Records.

My Father's Eyes was a turning point in Amy's career. It gave her her first Christian number-one hit in the title track, as well as the Top Ten Christian hit "Faith Walkin' People." The album would be certified gold in 1987.

In 2007, like many other albums by Amy, was reissued by Sparrow Records, her current label.
