Hide Me Not

When the road ahead is jagged
And these bones are feeling ragged
When my faith has almost all but slipped away

And when the shadows stretch on longer
Won’t you make my weak heart stronger
Grant that I may find the words to say

Hide me not from my master
Hide me not from my kin
Please return me to my neighbor and my friend

Oh release me from the darkness
That I’ve always known within
Reveal my soul and hide me not again

Well I know the steps I’ve taken
Are what lead me to temptation
And I know that I’ll design my own defeat

Yes I’ll know my darkest moment
Just before the dawn has broken
Won’t you dispatch my disguise and set me free

Hide me not from my master
Hide me not from my kin
And return me to my neighbor and my friend

Please release me from the darkness
That I’ve always known within
Reveal my soul and hide me not again
