Poems for Jesus

When did the stone become a gem?
When the tear a smile?
When without knowing came I to the end
Of many a weary mile?

When did the sighs become a song?
When did the clouds disband?
When poured the bright and golden sun
Over the dreary land?

When love enfleshed came down to stay
When from the grave it leapt
When dawned one glad eternal day
Where no more tears are wept.

Absolutely lovely. I'm sure He is smiling upon you now, and again each time this beautiful poem touches and comforts another heart.
