For Who He Really Is Lyrics

by Steven Curtis Chapman

"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"

Nobodys perfect but I just want to see
Somebody living, what they say they believe
Theyve got all this world needs like they say
I wonder why wont they give some away

Can she see God for who He really is
In what she sees in you and me, hey
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 lifes been so hard
He keeps his distance so they wont see the scars

Its just religion thats all dressed up in white
And God is love as long as youre living right
But does he know that Jesus also has 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, hey
Can he see God for who He really is
For who He really is, is all he really needs to see
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 well cross their paths unaware
And theyll stop and look at us, what will be there?

Will they see God for who He really is
In what they sees in you and me, hey
Can they see God for who He really is
For who He really is, is all they really needs to see

Can they see God for who He really is
They really need to see, who He really is
