For Who He Really Is Steven Curtis Chapman and Geoff Moore Copyright (C) 1988 Sparrow Song “Too many hypocrites,” I heard her say, “I even saw it in the headlines today. How can I follow God when His own people turn away? Nobody’s perfect, but I just want to see somebody living what they say they believe. If they got all this world needs like they say, I wonder why won’t they give some away?” Can she see God for who He really is in what she see in you and me? Can she see God for who He really is, For who He really is is all she really needs to see. He slips into church and he puts up his guard, They look so happy but his life’s been so hard. He keeps his distance so they won’t see the scars. “It’s just religion that’s all dressed up in white; God is love as long as you’re living right.” But does he know that Jesus also had scars and His love can reach him no matter how far? Can he see God for who He really is in what he sees in you and me? Can he see God for who He really is, For who He really is is all he really needs to see. The skeptics are watching to see who will fall While those disillusioned search for the Truth in it all. Maybe today we’ll cross their paths unaware and they’ll stop and look at us… What will be there? Will they see God for who He really is in what they see in you and me? Will they see God for who He really is, For who He really is is all they really need to see. I like this song... and heard it again tonight for the first time in years. What a powerful message.
