When God wants to drill a man
and thrill a man and skill a man

When God wants to mold a man to play the noblest part,
When he yearns with all his heart
to create so great and bold a man that all the world might be amazed,
Watch his methods, watch his ways.

How he ruthlessly perfects whom he royaly elects.
How he hammers and hurts him and with mighty blows
converts him into trial shapes of clay that only God understands
while his tortured heart is crying and he lifts beseeching hands.

How he bends but never breaks
when his good he undertakes.
How he uses whom he chooses
and with mighty acts induces him to try his splendor out.

God knows what he’s about.
