JUST AN OLD JEWELRY BOX

IM JUST AN OLD JEWELRY BOX
ON A SHELF AND MOSTLY FORGOTTEN
MY LID IS OFF THE HINGES
AND MY WOOD SEEMS ALL ROTTEN

I USED TO HAVE THIS MIRROR
IN THE LID YOU COULD LOOK
TO SEE YOURSELF WITH THE JEWELRY
I GUESS MY MIRROR WAS TOOK

I USED TO PLAY PRETTY MUSIC
BUT LIFE WOUND ME TOO TIGHT
I DONT HAVE ANY USE NOW DAYS
FOR I AM KEPT WAY OUT OF SIGHT

DOES ANYBODY WANT THIS JEWELRY BOX?
I GUESS I'VE SEEN MY BETTER DAYS
I WISH I COULD SERVE A PURPOSE
BUT NOW I HAVE LOST MY WAY

THEN ONE DAY SOMEBODY TOUCHED ME
HE REACHED DOWN FROM UP ABOVE
WITH HIM I FOUND MY PEACE
AND WITH HIM I FELL IN LOVE

HE GAVE ME SOME PRETTY MUSIC
A NEW MIRROR I CAN NOW REFLECT
NOW I'M A BEAUTY FOR JESUS
CAUSE JESUS DID NOT REJECT

I FEEL LIKE AN ALABASTER BOX
JUST LIKE MARY HAD BACK THEN
I MAY BE AN OLD JEWELRY BOX
BUT JESUS NOW ABIDES WITHIN


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
