Diamonds in the Rough Lyrics

While walking out one evening
Not knowing where to go
Just to pass the time away
Before we held our show

I heard the Bethel mission band
Singing with all their might
I give my heart to Jesus
And left the show that night

The day will soon be over
and digging will be done
No more gems be gathered,
So let us all press on

When Jesus comes to claim us
and says it is enough
The diamonds will be shining,
no longer in the rough

One day, my precious comrade
You, too, were lost in sin
While others sought your rescue
Jesus took you in

And when you're tired and tempted
And often times rebuffed
Don't turn away in anger
This diamond in the rough

The day will soon be over
and digging will be done
No more gems be gathered,
So let us all press on

When Jesus comes to claim us
and says it is enough
The diamonds will be shining,
no longer in the rough

Reading through the Bible
Some wondrous sights I see
I read of Peter, James, and John
On the Sea of Galilee

Jesus when he found them
He found them very tough
And they were precious diamonds
That he gathered in the rough

The day will soon be over
and digging will be done
No more gems be gathered,
So let us all press on

When Jesus comes to claim us
and says it is enough
The diamonds will be shining,
no longer in the rough
