deep within the marble

lay David all unknown

till a pair of loving hands

did violence to the stone


labored was the sculptor

who brought to life this art

taking what was common rock

then tearing it apart


crushed like none before it

broken piece by piece

surely did the marble wish

its agony to cease


but from devastation

from cuts felt most unkind

did the sculptor in this rock

an untold beauty find


such is all creation

a part of nature’s whole

as endless as the tears He’ll shed

to carve a living soul
