THE BEAUTY WITHIN

Written by: PETER ADELAKUN

There inside a man lies a real gem
But how unfortunate, this
Man does not see
It lies untouched like an untapped treasure

Its value surpasses the glory
Of the human face
And speaks better things 
Than man's outward appearance

It is more precious than jewel
And sparkles better than finest gold
Through it is the real man revealed
And by it is life lived well

This is the unfading beauty
Of a gentle and quiet spirit
Oh how great is its worth
In God's sight!
