Do you believe in the restoration of a broken life
Hiding behind a face yeah you never know what you might find
There in the darkness beneath the surface of time and space
Could be a treasure that you'd only see thru the eyes of grace

Looking for a diamond in the black coal
It feels good when you strike gold
Diamond in the black coal
If you never look then you're never gonna know

Well it's so sad when something so radiate is kept from the light
Cause I've see divine transformation that Jesus provides
And like a jeweler with a lifeless gemstone
He can make you shine

You could be a diamond in the black coal
It feels good when you strike gold
Diamond in the black coal
You gotta look or you're never gonna know

Precious diamonds
Brilliant shining
It's not always what you see
A good heart is just like a

Diamond in the black coal
It feels good when you strike gold
Diamond in the black coal
You gotta look or you're never gonna know

    Song MeaningThis song is pretty much about taking chances and not holding back, because holding back never got anyone anywhere. God wants you to take chances, otherwise you'll never find anything.

    General CommentI belive it is more about people that get saved after living a life in the "black coal". It reminds me of Paul. He was one of the most feared persecutor of his time, then he met Jesus on the road and became one of His most prosporus followers.
