Like rough hewn rock in velvet blue,
so my soul does feel when graced.
For of this earth, I’m but dust and time,
but more, when in the cloth I’m placed.
For God did pause one autumn day,
as He strolled this maple wood.
To grasp a humble, common stone, .
And lift it heavenward.
Then for reasons I shall never not know,
He touched me with His gentle hand,
And wiped away the dirt and grime,
the dust and grains of sand.
I saw no beauty in who I was,
I was little more than clay,
But in His eyes, I was a sparklin’ jewel,
That would shine one coming day.
It did take time for the worth within,
to surface to the Light,
In His hands, he polished me,
with His holiness of sight.
But the beauty that was most of all,
was when the Lord so lovingly did place,
This shard of hard and crusty rock,
in His soft, blue velvet grace.
