From under this cover Call me within the focus of your eyes Without any identity So long I was unknown I was only a part of a crowd Walking my way Bearing this sorrow of being unobserved Rescue me, know me in full. Where I am alone Get down to know me there Here loneliness is great Here my soul takes its solitary seat Bring your candle there See in me what is good and bad Let me shrug off my shyness and fear Let my all be within your view.
To others I am only a shadow I am unexpressed So I don't find my real self in their midst They know my name But not the person I am They know my works But not my innermost being. When I prove my worth to you Then I know my value Then I know I am a unique creation of God. Your love will then say aloud I have been the object of your quest For endless ages Discover me Fructify my lifelong wait From this bondage of non-identity I want to be free In your knowledge of me Where your true self be.
