Remove My Covering, Lord

1
Remove my covering, Lord,
That I may see Thy light,
And be deceived no more,
But all things see aright.
  Oh, may Thy living light, Lord,
Scatter all my night, Lord,
And everything make bright, Lord,
  For this I pray to Thee.
2
I hardly know myself;
Deceived so much by pride,
I often think I'm right
And am self-satisfied.
3
I know Thee even less;
In doctrine, shallowly;
True revelation lack
Of Thy reality.
4
As for Thy life within,
In darkness I mistake—
If spirit or the flesh,
One for the other take.
5
As for Thy way, O Lord,
I often am not clear;
I toward seclusion tend
And from the pathway veer.
6
As for Thy will for me,
I do not know it well;
I substitute my own
And often would rebel.
7
As for the church, I need
Thy revelation more,
The Body-life to know,
Thy wisdom to explore.
8
I long to be unveiled,
In everything made clear,
No more to be deceived
Or to my pride adhere.

The young people love to call this hymn during the Saturday meeting because of how long it is, but every time we sing this hymn I hear a fresh speaking from the Lord!

“As for thy will for me, I do not know it well, I substitute, my own and often would rebel” Lord make Your will for my life clear to me! Remove my covering.

This is one of my favorite hymns. As of the moment when we just finished enjoying the book "The Knowledge of Life", this song just sprang up. Yes, it is very true indeed that LIFE comes out from LIGHT. May the gracious Lord pour out, more of His mercy that the veils of our being may be completely removed. We need more experience of the Lord. More experience means more LIGHT, more LIGHT means more LIFE...
