Diamonds In The Rough

print

While walking out one evening
Not knowing where to go
Just to pass the time away
Before we gave the show

I met a little salvation band
Singing with all its might
I gave my heart to Jesus
And left the show that night

   The day will soon be over
   And begging will be done
   And no more gems be gathered
   So let us all press on

   Till Jesus comes to claim us
   And says it is enough
   The diamonds will be shining
   No longer in the rough

While reading through the Bible
Some wondrous sights I see
I read of Peter, James and John
By the Sea of Galilee

And Jesus when he found them
He found them very tough
and they were precious diamonds
He gathered in the rough
