Mask

Beneath the mask you’re wearing,
There lies a crumpled heap,
A mass of contradictions,
That you’re desperate to keep,
If only people knew you,
A heap of sin and shame,
They would surely shun you,
They wouldn’t be to blame.

As you keep on sinking,
Into this pit of guilt,
The devil has the victory,
With all the lies he’s built,
God doesn’t want to know you,
He wouldn’t waste His time,
So carry on your life of fear,
Slide deeper in the slime.

God loves you very deeply,
He wants to hold you near,
To bring light to your darkness,
And banish all your fear,
Through Jesus you have power,
To change your sense of worth,
And be just as He wants you,
His child of joy and mirth.
