    Why covereth Thou

    Why covereth thou
    For I am the wretched one
    Clothed with shame and dishonor
    Only to see you honor me once again

    Why covereth thou
    For I am the wretched one
    Why should thou cover me with thy glory
    When I am the lower than the dust

    Why covereth thou
    For I am the wretched one
    Not fit to stand in your presence
    Yet you set your glory upon me

    Why covereth thou
    For I am the wretched one
    Why should thou ask me to go for you
    For my words come from an empty and cruel heart

    Why covereth thou
    For I am the wretched one
    For my hands are hands of a murderer
    Yet you use these same hands to bless your disciples

    Why covereth thou
    For I am the wretched one
    Yet you say love covers the multitude of sin
    And my sins you have covered

    Why covereth thou
    For I am the wretched one
    For death is my reward
    But life you have blessed me with

    Why covereth thou
