Ron Block – Things Aren't Always As They Seem lyrics

Mary was engaged to wed
A baby inside barred the way
Joseph was to make her leave
But things aren't always as they seem

A baby in a manger lay
Helpless and poor to their eyes
The Word, the King in flesh has come
As a man He comes disguised

Things aren't always as they seem
They saw with their eyes but looked behind the dream

A woman taken in her sin
Caught by a mob with their stones
The Lord dismissed them with a word
'Cause things aren't always as they seem

A convict nailed to bleeding wood
Losing the will to breathe
Mocked by those He loved so well
He died alone in great defeat

Things aren't always as they seem
He saw with His eyes but looked behind the dream

Look behind the dream, see beyond the lie
The Son of God came down to give us His eternal life
Love will meet you there read between the lines
A love that lives beyond this veil of time

Things aren't always as they seem
We see with our eyes but look behind the dream
