Many’s the thing that steels a man
Brings to the higher plain
Some of it breathing loveliness
Some of it washed in pain
Things that were not commendable
Things he would have erased
But they are each a messenger
Drawing to Jesus’ face.
Such is the man by Grace renewed
Such is God’s “normal” heart
Deaf to the words of fashion’s craze
Set from the world apart.
And he will wonder of a time
Which is the wiser track
‘Til in some prayerful niche sublime
Jesus will call him back.
Back to embrace the One True Friend
Pearl of great price revealed
Pathways beneath His noble gaze
Leave the saint strong and “steeled”.
 
(Matthew 13: 44-46)
