While walking out, one evening
Not knowing where to go
Just to pass the time away
Before we held our show

I heard a little mission band
Playing with all their might
I gave my soul to Jesus
And left the show that night

The day will soon be over
And evening will be gone
No more gems to be gathered
So let us all press on

When Jesus comes to claim us
And says it is enough
The diamonds will be shining
No longer in the rough

Songwriters
Carter, Simon James
