Out of brokenness, He brings forth loveliness;
Out of bitterness, sweetness;
Out of nothingness, something beautiful;
Out of the valley, streams of healing waters;
Out of ignobility, aristocracy;
Out of a sow’s ear, a silk purse;
Out of tatteredness, wholesomeness;
Out of chaos, orderliness;
Out of confusion, clarity;
Out of a pile of mess, a message.
Only my Lord and Friend can do that,
For He works all things together for good for everyone who loves Him.
