When facing stressful situations And pressures in life, Will you settle yourself to be a clump of coal Or transform into a valuable diamond? You can become a valuable diamond When you submit your cares Into the hands of the Good Shepherd Who will guide you with his loving hands. When mined out of earth As a dull, shapeless diamond, Will you undergo the disciplining of the great Teacher To transform into a sparkling diamond? You can become a sparkling diamond When you are cut and polished By the hands of the master Craftsman Who will perfect you with His craftsmanship. When you radiate the beauty of Christ By the myriad hues and colors Of godly character and nature, The name of Christ is glorified through you.
