It's Not Me You See...

by Poetic Freedom

When you see that Iím laugin
Even though I "should be" cryin.
When you see me lend a hand
To someone that was cruel.
Itís not me you see, 
Itís Godís courage livin in me

When you see me smile at my enemies
help Ďem out when they in need...
Itís not me you see,
Itís Godís love shining through me

When you see that Iím fastin,
When you see me keep on prayin.
When you see me go to church;
When you see me on the altar,
When you see me in the pews.
When you here me singing tunes...
Itís not me you see,
Itís Godís faith stickin with me

When you see me in the corner,
When you see that Iím cryin.
When you see that Iím hurtin, 
When you see that Iím alone.
When you see that Iím struggling,
To carry on this load...
Itís not me you see,
Itís the PASSION of the Lord

When you see me in the class,
When you see me study w/o rest,
When you see me ace the test...
Itís not me you see
It the wisdom of the spirit within me

When you see me make some choices...
(I know that theyíre not perfect)
when you see that I have sinned
(donít worry, God is ready to forgive)
when you see me in confession
(itís because Iíve learned my lesson)
when you see that I have changed, 
itís not me you seeÖ
itís God "stripes" that have saved me
