That’s What God Looks Like
Lyric © 2002 Greg C. Brown

V1
Last night I tucked my daughter into bed
And listened as she said her evening prayer.
“God bless my friends and family,” she said,
“And thank you, God, for always being there.”

V2
I kissed her cheek and pulled the blankets up,
But just as I was turning out the light,
She sat up on one elbow and she asked,
“Daddy, do you know what God looks like?”

PRE CHORUS
I stood there in the darkness scratching my head,
After just a moment this is what I said…

CHORUS
God looks like the clouds that kiss the sun,
He looks just like the fishes in the sea.
His face reflects the light of everyday,
I think He looks a bit like you and me.
God looks like the roses when they bloom,
The painted leaves of autumn when they fall.
You’ll see Him in the laughter of true friends
Because He looks a little like us all.

God resembles all that’s good and right,
Darling, that’s what God looks like.

V3
I tiptoed down the hall back to my den
And thought about the things I’d said to her.
I smiled and said a grateful prayer myself:
Thank you, God, for giving me the words.

REPEAT CHORUS
God looks like the clouds that kiss the sun,
He looks just like the fishes in the sea.
His face reflects the light of every day,
I think He looks a bit like you and me.
God looks like the flowers when they bloom,
The painted leaves of autumn when they fall.
You'll see him in the laughter of true friends
Because he looks a little like us all.

God is red and yellow, black and white,
Darling, that’s what God looks like.

BRIDGE
I heard her talking to her dolls
With the wisdom of a child.
She told them God looks like the things
That make you smile.

God resembles all that's good and right,
Darling, that's what God looks like.
