The Gem

As I sift
Within the sacred
earth—

Burrowing
Searching
Uncovering,
I contemplate
And reaching deep,
Take hold
Of Israel’s hope.

A gem I find—
The bright and
morning star.

And in my hand
Eternal beauty
Reigns
And deigns
To be mine,
Its facets sharp,
A two-edged sword.

And I am pierced
With loving penetration
As the gem
Now within
Crowns my heart
With Yeshua,
Rock of Ages.
