We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shadoes our eyes
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and leeding hearts we smile
And mouth with myriad subtleties.

Why should the world bo over side,
In counting all our tears and sight?
Nay, let them only see us, while 
  We wear the mask.

We smile, but oh great Christ, our cries
To Thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
But let the world dream otherwise, 
  We wear the mask!
