Reveal Ones Soul
To reveal ones soul
Is to reveal ones all

To reveal ones all
Is to find ones soul

To find ones soul
Is to find inner peace

Oh Lord thy God teach me
Teach me the art of inner peace

Teach me to find the balance
To find the harmony that I seek

Lord teach me to love as thy love
So that I can have balance  

Lord teach me to have balance
So that I can have harmony

Oh Lord teach me to reveal my soul
For to reveal my soul is to love thy love
