YOUR LOVE SHINES LIKE A DIAMOND (A Song About Hidden Beauty)

diamond gem cubic zirconia

Your love shines like a diamond
Across the ocean wide
Your love is such a treasure
When in You, we are found and abide

Your love lifts us from hopelessness
Beyond the darkest way
Your love sends light, so brightly
Sends fragrance and sweetness to stay

Chorus
Lord, please shine Your light upon these diamonds
Show us that you care
Shine Your light
From Heaven so brightly
Shine joy through each layer of wear
Shine Your light
Shine Your light
Make these diamonds
Your very own
Oh! Saviour
Release in us
Shining stars of love
Bringing forth joys and praise unknown

Diamonds were not always beautiful
For once they were trapped and unseen
Buried beneath such hardness and crushed
In pain, they release glorious sheen

Chorus
Lord, please shine Your light upon these diamonds
Show us that you care
Shine Your light
From Heaven, so brightly
Shine joy through each layer of wear
Shine Your light
Shine Your light
Make these diamonds
Your very own
Oh! Saviour
Release in us
Shining stars of love
Bringing forth joys and praise unknown

So let the Saviour treasure these diamonds
Of which we have become
Yes, circumstances … may be rough
But in beauty and uniqueness, His love
Has prevailed and won

Rays of sunshine now shining through
Bring love to us overflowing for others
Rays of hope sing forth with wonder
Diamonds lost, now found by the King

Sing out, sing out
The Saviour’s found us
Hidden and unseen
Sing out, sing … sing … sing
Love’s hand has found us
Yes, we’re found and eternally set
In the treasure house of our King

    1. Thank you Betty Jo. Just lately the Lord puts a song in my heart with the first line … and then leads me through the rest … How can one describe His beauty or ways! We cannot even touch on the perfection of His creation … only His Word reveals all … xxx
