With greatest skill most carefully

Carved out defense strategically

Animated mask world to face

Adapted to each time and place

For every scene and every task

Crafted out for truth to mask

Written acts of scenes conceive

Played by impressions we leave

Thus, when actor’s part is cast

Role and actor’s thoughts broadcast

Place God in church for exaltation

When true God is in congregation

Drama masks in ancient Greece

Made from wood and cotton fleece

Are not preserved in glass displays

Since none survived those older days

When made up mask is set aside

When truth is one without divide

When even stage lights disconnect

Truth stands readily to connect


O Lord grant me the vision to see Thee peeping out playfully behind each of Thy masks as people, places and scenes. Let me recite Thy lines from Thy script and never falter or question Thy plot or design for I am made in Thy image.
