In my dream I knelt before Your throne
You placed a bejeweled crown upon my head
In awe I marveled at my precious gift and You instructed me on its care
More valuable than any earthly possession
Each gem perfection, shining brightly before the King of Glory.
As brilliant as the sun was jewel number one
Beautifully graced with a heart and mind attuned to God.
Her destiny written in the heaven’s above
She paints the moon and stars in masterful worship.
It is well with my soul.
My love for you precious jewel number two
Endless, infinite, never-ending
Sealed in prayer and consecrated at your very first breath.
Your life a miracle for the world to see, and melody for ears to hear
Teaching and spreading the good news.
Jewel number three looked as a mirror of me
Alike on its surface, but brilliantly clear in breadth and depth within
Racing after God in complete abandon
To the ends of the earth seeking broken hearts and weary minds.
Mercy and favor ever-flowing before her.
Magnificient to behold was stunning jewel number four
Gloriously singing in high praise
She stuns the world with untold gifts
Her hands dancing across the strings and keys
And the people sing, “Hosanna in the highest!”
And behold! At the centerpiece I gazed in wonder as you were set in place, the crown jewel number five
With an exclamation point you arrived, a delightful aria to my symphony
Both long answered prayer and covered by the Holy One
She is a joyful masterpiece
His promise of a hope and a future.
Most only see the outward shell of me
Smiling, singing, giving, living
With wisdom and understanding
I care for my most precious legacy
A crown more valuable than any earthly possession
The revealed pieces of the whole.
