Diamonds in the Rough
While walking out one ev'ning, not knowing where to go
Just to pass the time away before we held our show
I heard the Bethal's mission band they sang with all their might
I gave my heart to Jesus and I left the show that night.
The day will soon be over and digging will be done
No more gems to be gathered now so let us all press on
When Jesus comes to claim us all and says it is enough
The diamonds will be shining but no longer in the rough.
One day my precious comrades, you too were lost in sin
And others sought to rescue but 'twas Jesus took you in
And when you're tired and tempted too and scoffed by sin's rebuff
Don't turn away in anger you're a diamond in the rough.
While reading through the Bible, what wondrous sites I see
I read of Peter, James and John, by the sea of Galilee
And Jesus, when He found them there He found them very tough
And they were precious diamonds that He gathered in the rough.
