Covered over by a blinding light
Twisting me to things no right
Nor right for me
I turned all about
Feeling alone and desperate for flight

Covered in fear and all alone
Covered in cover, cover
No where to roam
Caged By the blinding light

Years of, darkness no light
Sitting and hoping things would be right
Shrouded in pain and fear
screaming but no one could hear

Wanted to be needed and loved bound by fear
Covered in shame for nothing I did
Yet living a life being hid
Screaming in the night, running in the dark
Screaming and yet no one hears

By the light that was not right
Covered as if living in the night and thinking it was alright
Covered and shrinking away to be left by a darkening light
Beware that the light in you is not darkness.

Throw off the covers of this darkened light
Throw off the shame of things not right
Scream, scream for the struggle to be free
Realizing that the light that is darkness is not right

Deliver me Lord Jesus from this shame and deceit
Give me the true light and help me up on my feet
I shall not sit in this darkened light
For it is not of you

Where are you my fair one?
I am hidden in fear …I am hidden because no one would hear
I am hidden
Hidden from the ones that say they care
Hidden to live in heartache and despair

I am hidden
No one sees the beauty in me
They tell me I’m wrong so they can be free

They are just lost in broken dreams
Running from hurts that cannot be seen.

These are the covers that k ill their life
The covers of brokenness that are not all right
Darkened light

s is not for you my child to sit in hidden array
For it was not meant for you to stay hidden from the day

My child of light it will be all right as you sit by my side
Never more to run and hide from the darkened light.
Rise up and be heard
Don’t be ashamed of what you have heard

Uncover yourself from this darkened state
I will walk with you in true light if you have heard
Lighting your path to a new life and way
It’s time to come out of the saddened array

Covered, Hidden,
In heartache and despair
Sitting and hoping that changes would be there.
Bound and destroyed they all come to me
Wishing and wishing they would be set free.

Step out into the light of day
Where we can plan each new day
Don’t sit with the lies of men and
Stay away from those that walk in this sin
Hidden state of darkened light.
