Hang my head low, so low.
Don't see me only as I am but
see me how I long to be.
Shining like a flowering tree
under a gray Pennsylvania sky.
Look for me as you go by.
Hang my head low, so low.
Every burden shall be lifted.
Every stone upon your back slide into the sea.
It's me for you and you for me.

    General CommentThe speaker is ashamed for failing and falling short of God's expectations. He knows that others see his shortcomings and look down on Christ's message because of his sin. But the speaker tells them "see me how I long to be" - look at Christ and his message because I won't ever be an adequate example of His beauty and perfection. And although the speaker continues to keep his head hung low, he speaks of the hope he has that Christ will lift the burden of sin from upon him in the end.

    "It's me for you and you for me" is the reader's declaration of dependence upon God - you can even hear a voice say "Oh God" after several declarations.
