Who are you Lord, in this disguise?
What power do You wield?
Where is my part in this new act?
What will I find revealed?
O Divine Enchantress
Thy look doth fix my gaze
And holds it fast upon You
While my poise it slays.
Is this charm a passing thing?
Will I 'morrow see You same?
Or, perhaps, You, as myself
Will guide me through Your flame.
No doubt You've subdued many
Both weak and strong alike
And given pleasure beyond compare
But, Lord, what is Your price?
When You waken from Your role
Will You like what You see?
When I awaken from Your role
Will I still be me?
Be sweet my Lord
While acting out this part
Be gentle my Lord
And please don't break my heart.
For 'tho, my Lord, in many ways
You've made me well and strong
When You decide You want to sing
Who can resist Your song?
All things in time, You've told me Lord
In this, Thy grand parade
And that which is alluring now
Is surely doomed to fade.
And so, my Lord, although it's true
I love Your new disguise
As before You've always done
Keep my perspective wise.
