1. When my mask is stripped away
and my smile falls to the ground
you can see into my heart,
all my hiding has been found. Refrain:
Tell me how can I be loved,
if then this is what God sees?
Feeling naked, incomplete
makes me fall down on my knees.
2. I can only be myself
standing stripped before your gaze,
And the fear of who I am
makes me turn my eyes away. Refrain:
3. Have mercy on me, God
and cleanse me from my sin
From the guilt that all can see
and what’s hiding deep within. Refrain:
4. Create in me, O God,
a clean, unbroken, heart.
Let your Holy Spirit guide me
in a brand new start. Refrain:
So then this is how God loves!
O Lord, open my mouth
And I joyfully will sing
your praises North and South!
