Extracted from the depths unknown
Buried in the hardest stone
Gold and diamonds, gems of worth
Dug from the bowels of the earth.
From far below by labour’s toil
The spoil of excavated soil
These precious jewels newly mined
Must now be purified, refined.
With dross removed their splendour shines
(A light long hid in deepest mines)
They now reflect in sunlight’s gleam
Rays of brilliance long unseen.
The heart of man in darkness bound
Like hardest stone in deepest ground
God by His Spirit can renew
And with His light the soul imbue.
Then man alive in Sonlight’s beam
Alight by radiance unseen
Reflecting like a polished gem
The brilliance only found in Him.

Vince, This poem is a "gem." It is always good to be reminded that trials and pain must come to remove our impurities that we too will shine with "the brilliance only found in Him." Well done.
