Old Moses came down from a high mountain top;
Like a sun, the Glory-of-God shone from his face.
A hidden Darkness in the people feared the Light!
So, Moses wore a veil when he was out in public -
But when face to face with God, there was no veil.
And so then, our minds became hard and closed;
We hid from Jehovah behind our thin veil of Laws.
When Jesus died for us, the veil was ripped aside,
So that all could gaze on each other's naked faces -
To discover there, the reflected Grace-of-the-Lord.
We saw each other, transfigured there before us,
And we felt the deep old need for the old old veil -
Driven by our fearful demons, we built an edifice.
We soon found we couldn't cast out the demons,
Because we had hidden the Light behind a veil.
