While walking out one evening
Not knowing where to go
Just to pass the time away
Before we gave the show
I met a little salvation band
Singing with all its might
I gave my heart to Jesus
And left the show that night

The day will soon be over
And degging will be done
And no more gems be gathered
So let us all press on
Till Jesus comes to claim us
And says it is enough
The diamonds will be shining
No longer in the rough

While reading through the Bible
Some wondrous sights I see
I read of Peter, James and John
By the Sea of Galilee
And Jesus when he found them
He found them very tough
And they were precious diamonds
He gathered in the rough
