Repeat the last two lines of each verse


Remove the veils, Lord, from my heart;

True revelation grant to me;

A vision clear, O Lord, impart

Of Thy recovery.


By revelation I perceive

The power that raised Christ from the dead;

When I by faith this power receive,

I to the church am led.


Thy mighty power has set me free

From all the world's distracting things;

An entrance to the local church

This mighty power brings.


Once in the local church, I need

To take Thee as my person, Lord;

My outward man each day recede,

My heart is for the Lord.


I take Thee as my person, Lord;

I have been crucified with Thee.

My inner man has been restored;

I'm now indwelt by Thee.


When all Thy members self forsake,

Thy glorious Body, Lord, is known;

When of Thy Person we partake,

The one new man is shown.


The church life is the one new man

In every local church expressed;

Thy Body is a corporate man,

One Person manifest.
